hello all, im working on a model and would like your help please with technique. im trying to have the right topology for when this curved end meets another part. i can leave it as is originaly, and it looks better but i want to have good foundations to work with. ive had troubles in the past with this sort of thing and can never seem to defeat this problem. help wanted thanks

so let me know if im on the right track here and where i should go next. or if i completely got the wrong idea ? thanks

First of all: in your left image the grid is a bit distracting. Looking in the blend-file someone can see that you try to use less polygons and the result is a triangle. Okay you donât just copy the given topology because you wanna learn, then compare. Your Bulge is a different, do you like it that way; are you more low poly or wanna be more precise to? Maybe equalize the distances between points.
Tip: look at the model with âMesh Analysisâ on and or with a shiny MatCap. That will show any âdiscomfortâ.

part b is what i have. part c is the part im copying ( has no verts i can see, just finished model) and in part b with matcap it doesnt look great. im wondering if the topology is right in part b

sorry if its confusing. part a is the basic simple part. part b is me trying to give it proper topology. i was wondering if this is good or what i can do better. as part b looks even worse then the basic part a

Ahhh now i see: well i think you are on the right path. Maybe the right side of the bulge has to be observed later. So just model on and handle it (pun intended) I played arround and youâre right: vertex pushing ahead

ah ok thanks. yea its bulgy and weird but as long as im on the right path thats good

Hi, in this tutorial around 1:39 he shows how to model that part: https://youtu.be/K4GCf8Yq2o8

This is fun actually. I played around little more, but to be honest my topology is not really goodâŚ
(Once again: depends on your plans: low poly with subdiv for normal baking or precise model?)
