This is the model at the end of stage 1...
I've completed step 2, but when we do the smoothing, I've got all kinds of weirdness going on that the tutorial model does not have.
I went back to my model that we saved at the end of stage 1, and I see these crooked lines that the tutorial model does not have.
Anyhow, any idea how to fix this? As you can see in the original model, it looks pretty much flawless and I don't see any good reason for these indiscrepencies to emerge.
I've merged all vertices possible, how does one fix this without starting over? Keep in mind I'd have to make the change to the unsmoothed model, not to the smoothed result.
PS, To the author of this tutorial, great job. I've done 2 sections and have learned a great deal of great techniques. Thanks for taking the time to baby step through everything (at least the first time you do it) so I can really catch on to all the little things you're doing. This is a great tutorial for a beginner to Maya.
