Facial Edge Flow

After blocking out a head in Silo last night, I wanted to start work on sorting the edge flow out. WHat a nightmare! Edge flow is a new concept to me, I had no idea it even existed and it’s hard work correcting it – probably because I’ve never even tried before. At the moment I’m likening it to a Rubik’s Cube – every time I sort one problem out another crops up as a result – a rogue triangle or a n-gon (like the whopping great one in the screenshot here!) springs up.

Edge flow seems to be like ripples from a water drop, they ring around the eyes and mouth – I haven’t yet worked out how the rest of the head polygons connect with them…

Guess I’ll keep plugging away!
