to clarify, I'm attempting to model a Kylo Ren (Star Wars Ep 7) helmet in Blender. As you can see in this picture, there are metallic patterns on his cheek area.
I am fairly new to Blender, so I was wondering if there is a way to trace the pattern with something like the knife tool, or a grease pencil type drawing tool that actually cuts the mesh, and then extrude the pattern to desired thickness.
Or if there is a simpler way to extrude the pattern, I'd be thankful for info on that too.
Thanks in advance. JB
