Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

UV Head unwrap problem

Hey guys, so Im trying to unwrap this head and for some reason, when I make a cut along the back center seam, and click cut uvs then I try to unwrap it in UV editor, nothing happens... all I see is the head on planar projection without any unwrap at all.. heres a pic of all I see. It doesnt want to let me make a seam and unwrap it...

Have you made sure that nothing's holding it back from unwrapping? Does it go all the way down to the neck's seam? Try to detach the head from the body, and then try.


Imagination is more important than knowledge.
