Guys how do i make that top extrusion sharp without changing the flow of the lower part?

enter image description here

I want the green area to be sharp but without those creases below.

  • $\begingroup$ i want to tighten the sideways. adding a loop would sharpen everything. And no creasing doesnt work as expected $\endgroup$ – Ashok Jun 24 '18 at 9:31
  • $\begingroup$ sorry I'm not sure about what part of your mesh you want to sharpen, if you're talking about the front vertical angle you can add an edge loop close to the top edge and move it far from the bottom edge, like this: zupimages.net/up/18/25/hz53.jpg $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 24 '18 at 9:47
  • $\begingroup$ that isnt clean tho. Isnt there any other way of sharpening the top extension with, even with tris? $\endgroup$ – Ashok Jun 24 '18 at 12:01

    $\begingroup$ I thought you wanted the sharpness only on the top: "how do i make that top extrusion sharp without changing the flow of the lower part?" was your question... if you want the bottom to be sharp as well, move the edges close to each others so that it will increase the sharpness all along... but I think I've missed something or you haven't been clear enough, anyway I don't think having a separate top is a good solution $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 24 '18 at 16:04

I think you should consider applying subdivision modifier to the sphere so you have more vertices to work with and then extrude to top bit, it will make your model a bit higher on the vertex count but it let you manipulate the model more easily.

besides that check some tutorials about edge flow (there are a lot not blender related but when it comes to topology it doesn't matter what software you are using), I recommend Arrimus 3D he is amazing (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSLLdTBwLMfTKWS56tOiQpw)

and the most important video on the subject .. https://vimeo.com/10941211 by Grant Warwick

hope it helps
