Spline modelling - Head question
show user profile  avionz
Hi all,

I've been following a video tutorial which shows how to model a character head using splines/cross section/surface modifier. The tutorial covers the front side of the head but does not cover the back side. So I've decided to do use what I've learnt and do it myself.

The problem is I'm not sure whether to create a new line in the stack or carry on using the same line. I have tried it by using the same line but when I use cross section, the mesh turns black. However, in perspective view, the back side of the new mesh is the colour it should be(pink).

Is it something to do with the surface modifier? Because when I tick flip normal, the back of the head turns to pink (as it should) but the front changes to black!

Any ideas or advice as to what I'm doing wrong or a better method of doing it?


Thanks! :)
