I want to enter a 3d modelling contest of a game for the skin of a character and one of the guideline was to "Remember to keep support loops for joints in the same place."
What does that mean exactly? I've been searching & searching and I can't find the answer, it just seems like some sort of unexplained jargon.
Any explanation for the "support loop" term would be greatly appreciated. (Is it just a special type of loop cut?)
An explanation in the context of my contest's guidelines would be even better.
