Loving the tutorial. What's the difference, in your opinion, of using inset tool and using your "helper" edge loops? They both appear to work, I was just wondering if there is any major difference I'm not seeing.
Hi dethharmoniker, I'm really happy to hear you're enjoying the tutorial! "Helper edges" (or as I call them "holding edges") aren't really the same thing as the inset tool. That's kind of like comparing a sharp wood edge to the chisel that helped create the sharp edge.The inset tool can be used to generate helper edges, particularly for round shapes.
