Hi, long time follower first time poster.
Iím currently teaching myself how to sharpen edges on a smoothed hard surface. And up until now Iíve been able to figure out all the smoothing 'pinching' with topology adjustments.
However I am now trying to bevel an inside (concave) corner of some car body work as in :
I read somewhere that creating a 5 sided N-Gon on the surface is ok but iím experiencing subtle pinching on the corner. Although this is the best solution iíve come up with so far:
Iíve tried image 3 below where I continue the edges along the original edges to avoid the N-Gon but this produces an ugly crease along the hoodís surface because the edges are too close together.
My last thought was to distribute those new edges evenly among the existing topology (image 4) but iím reluctant to do so as this will add a lot of extra edge flow to the geometry...
Iíve tried lots of other crazy ideas but they all failed also.
Does anyone have any experience tackling these kinds of topological structures?
Any help/advice would be greatly received. Thanks.
