You might try

and scroll to the bottom.

Or have a look at the links in the tutorials section.

There's a great primer explaining a lot about subdivision modeling.
http://www.subdivisionmodeling.com/page1.htm

There are many different ways to model different objects.  You can find a lot of tutorials using different programs that will be just as useful for you such as the Joan of Arc tutorial.

it looks like ur having the same problem i am having with the lips. its close but no cigar. i guess it depends on how u make the rest of ur face but keep workin at it. ull get it eventually.

(it kinda loks like lips on a muppet)

It's MP3D's tutorial. It helped make me the modeler I am now.


I can't find the tut either though. :(

Oh! Rellik, the lips were sopposed to look like that. You'll understand it when you see the full face that was made in the tut.

captaindrewi: that tutorial is not showing every step in the program.  All it's demonstrating is how the lips are made up of loops.  There is hardly any modeling that is done automatically like that.  You can use edge extruding, but you still have to reposition vertices to where you want them.

thanks for replying,i bow to your knowledge hiho.
perhaps edge extruding was used in this fabled demo/tutorial
i once followed.i
so infuriating that i didn't save the information at the time.
i am saving as much anim8or technical tute info as i can nowadays
just in case it fades away.

The lines you have drawn so far are 'splines'. In anim8or splines are no more than helper lines.
To make a model you will want to make edges instead in the point edit mode (have a look in the manual for all that.)

Once you have made the lines as edges in the edit mode, you can create edges in between those and fill them to make the shape of the face.

Good luck!
