    Hi! when I try to separate the elephant’s trunk with split (min. 20:26 video) i hit Y key but don’t split. Later, if i move those edges they are still connected
    Then, to try, I’m gone to basic initial cube, make some cuts and works.
    But if i make split with a cube with subdivision, when i split and move edges, they move alone, no with their connected faces. I have a circle of edges separates. What is the difference?

    It would be easier to explain if I could post pictures 😛

    I hope you understand me because my english is not very good

    Thanks in advance 😉

    I am stuck on the creating the burlap because many of the options you ticked in this version of blender are no longer there. I even tried moving it into the internal blender render like you had yours and nothing. The wood noise is not displaying at all without having your options enabled. I am not even sure of a work around under this new blender build which is pretty amazing.

    I want to make a teddy bear model similar to this, but use it for animations, im fairly new to blender and am just wondering if I created my bear, using this tutorial, could the model then be used for animation in blender?
    I was thinking of creating it with this tutorial and then moving over to one like the piero tutorial to learn how to animate it into a scene, is this a silly idea?
    Also I realise that the way a bear would move if it were to come to life, its body would behave and move differently due to its stuffing and lack of skeleton. I want to make it as realistic as possible movement wise so I am a bit stuck as how to go about this………
    I appreciate any guidance with my question.
    Thank you
