Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Finalizing a simple creature , part of Blender Essential Training.
Once the character's hands are stitched to the body, the character is pretty…close to being finished.…Now, we do have a few things that we should do as we start to finalize this mesh.…One is, we still need to fit the eyes to the eye socket.…So the eyes are going to be just simple Spheres, so let's just go ahead and…add in a UV Sphere.…Now, this comes in a little bit big, so we definitely want to scale that down…to about the size of that eye socket, and let's go ahead and just move that into place.…
And I'm just kind of getting it pretty close.…Now, one of the things I'm kind of realizing is that the eye might be a little…bit big, but actually, it's nice to have the eye a little bit bigger than the…eye socket, that gives you a little bit more room to play with.…So maybe I can scale it down just a hair, but not too much.…You don't want it so it's inside the eye socket, you actually want it a little bit bigger.…And now, once I have that, then all I have to do is select my mesh, go into Edit…Mode, and then just kind of tweak the position of those edges here.…
