I don’t usually post tiny little “here’s a link you should go see” things to th’ ol’ weblog here, but this one is just too good not to spread around. From this writeup on Massively, I found Ayumi Cassini’s “The ultimate guide to prim twisting“, which describes simply and straightforwardly the exact prim twiddlings needed to get this lovely set of (non-scuplty) prim shapes, of the kind that I am forever staring at in the builds and sculptures of those more skilled than I, and thinking
That’s only one prim? How the fleen did they dooooo that?”.
So now I know. And you can too! :)
