Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Detailing the end of the arm, part of Game Art: Model & UV Map a Low Poly Character.
- In this video, we're going to take care of…a little bit of work left in order to finish…off detailing the piston support…that we started creating…making sure that it is ready for the unwrapping stage.…Let's come back into polygon sub-object mode…if we are not there already.…And make sure we have the end polygon selected.…Once done, we want to shift click on the extrude tool.…And set the height to around about 1.8 cm.…And click OK.…
We can then enable the scale tool via the r key.…And scale in the z or the axis in order to match…the high poly mesh.…And then we want to extrude again…matching up to the end of the high poly geometry.…So then extrude of around about 7.6 cm…should do just nicely.…At this moment in time we have this shocking pole…essentially an area where five or more edges converge…on a mesh.…
Which would be fine…if it were on a hidden area on the geometry…but as it clearly isn't…we're going to hit the delete key…and then come into sub-object mode…so that we can then close to select the open border…and then control click to jump into edge sub-object mode…
