I made this axe and now i want to add subdivision surface to smooth the edges but i got some problems. This is the axe without the modifier. enter image description here

I applied the modifier and now i'm trying to add supporting loops to make edges sharper. enter image description here I dont want this effect on those spots. I want it kinda like in the concept photo. Do u have an idea on how to achieve that?


tried to edge slide (g + g) some edges the seams are not dissapearing. enter image description here enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ yes. and is there any way to make the other seams less obvious? $\endgroup$ Oct 25 '20 at 16:05

It happens because when you want to sharp the angle on the top you create a new edge loop that also sharps the bottom one:

You can keep the topology as it is and simply slide the edge loop along the bottom (GG and you'll be good:
