Another common Graphite tool for topology modification is SwiftLoop. This is a very, very useful tool that allows you to add a New Edge Loop anywhere on your model. And it works in any mode, it's found in the Edit panel. Here it is, SwiftLoop. I will click on that to activate it. Then I just hover my mouse over anywhere on the model and that green line is a preview of an Edge Loop that has not yet been created. If I want to create an Edge Loop at that location, I will just click, and boom! I have got one there. That was so easy.
I will add another one here and now I've got three Edge Loops in that area. And if I want to create a little bit of a rounded, filleted corner there, I can go into Edge sub-object mode and double- click to select that edge, and I will just use the Scale tool, give that a little bit of a rounded, filleted corner. That was so easy. SwiftLoop is one of most useful tools you are going to find.
