Thanks again I got them connected and filled and colored.
I had to go back and make corrections to some areas not filled.
Pic #3 shows the final.
The more I play aroud and buttons and all I begin to learn its easier than it looks.

Here my results.

This been fun to do.. now I can try a whole body figure.

Thanks very much...
I was using the wrong button... followed hand tutor and it said the  button (like corner) next to the line then the dot.
You used the LINE button and so thats called the edge mode?  After selecting that line and drage copy.. all the lines tun white
and filled oles.  Now I cam add color to it...

Did apply this to my face project...
all the squares were filled in except for 2.. it was not fillin in..  So pretty good for a first face project out of scratch.
There must been 75 squares and triangles in my face alltogether..

-- about the 4 points in a square.. i meant to say 8, sorry for confusion.

Now when I was done.. I selected  the object mesh and chose build> mirrior>OK
Got the other half on  but its two objects now.
I need to connect them.

Thanks very much

hmmm thats exactly what Im doing? i press shift.. hold it in - click a point and hold down mouse button andrelease the shift.
I have a dot.  from there I can draw a line to the next coner and click there and continue another line to the next corner.. doing this intill all 4forners are connected.. and I make sure it sures red when I click a dot there.

4 connected dots and 12 lines visible.. makes a box.

then clicked fill holes.. -- still can not use edge mode to select all my dots, not even one?  and just a white screen where the grag was over the entire object.

MUST I press shift for every point?  because I only been doing that on the first dot.. and from there I can make more points and lines.

I will check back later tonte, its my bed time ( night worker here)
Thanks again

ok here how I did it..
In this case lets assume Im making a box with 4 corners without using the block.. just connecting with dots.

press SHIFT key, click mouse to make a point...
drag to next spot and click.  keep doing this...

When I come back to connect to a point already made.. the little white suqre of the point turns red and I click there...
from each points I have a line...

Now have a full enclosed box with four conters and connected and lines up.

I filled holes...

but can not fill in with colors?  like I can with the block methods.

ok back at the project here last night.
I was able to do all the DOTs outline and have my face created...
only dont the DOT connects.. so the next part I need to do is perhaps convert to mesh?

The video showed the guy making the nose... suddenly it was colored.. he didnt show how that was done.
Again he prolly SAID it and due to my hearing loss.. I didnt catch it.

I need to finalize it..
Im at he moment between have the whole half of my head completed ( and before he had his nose painted and covering on his wireframe.

So I need to learn how to mirror the other half..
and how to finalize it such as convert to mesh and so forth...

I did tried the command to convert to mesh but its greyed out on my project.

I have done several tutoring session and did well..
most of it was from block or cylinder which then I wud convert to mesh...

Have not done a project from scratch without using block or cylinders.. so how do I get it ready for that?
also how to mirror the other half.

Thanks very much.

Thanks, will check on that next time I get into the program.

Thanks :)

Pressing shift works to turn it on and I was able to move on to outlining the nose
( in front view and side view).

Obviously he must said press shift (but the video didnt say that in words to read).
This is where I luck out on listening... have to do it all visually.

Then the program showed me to use the copy.. the square button to select my points on one side..
but it did not "show" me what to do in the following steps..

how to fill in and place in the other side.. (Mirror?)

Im sure he said it in the video but due to hearing loss.. Im not able to know what he said..
his screen suddenly showed his progress but no mouse action showing what he did to do that?

What do I need to do here?
I saved my progress till I find out..

Meanwhile Im reveiwing some tutorial on other anim8or projects like the hand, etc.

Hi guys :)

Im new here.. playing with sculptris and now getting into blender and anim8tor..

I came across this video on youtube as it was mention in beginning of this thread.
Code: [Select]

I tried to follow the video (visually because Im hearing impaired) to watch all his hand movements on which buttons he used to do what in each steps..

Im able to import 2 pics ( front and side view) and move the side view pics to the side..

but when I get tot he points to begin making the points  such as my nose just like it was in the video..
Nothing shows up.. no dots or lines???

I must be doing something wrong or it was something he mention  ( talking ) and not shown in video as to what he did to activate it..

I also looked at the  link up here  to the points.

I open my configuration there and its all blank..
maybe thats why.. or maybe its something I missed out on the talking because I can not hear .

Hope someone can charm in and provide me a ("typed out")
step by step procedure to accomplish this task and I can roll into the papakuru program.

Much appreciated.
