So maybe I want to move this out to start forming the upper arm of the character.…So I am going to switch to the Move tool.…When I first select this face, if I try to move it, you can see you get some…weird deformation there.…So I am just going to undo that.…We want to actually use the Extrude command.…So I am going to go up here to Edit Mesh > Extrude.…Now, when we go to drag this face out from the cube, Maya is going to…
