Makeover In retrospect she didn’t win because she was a little too non-distinct . . too bland (the winning entry was a girl in a trench coat with a sword on her back). Therefore I got together with Callisto and did a little makeover (she wasn’t too happy about losing, either).

Barbaric! If it isn’t already active, click on the Create panel tab and click the Shapes menu active . Go down to the Line button so it turns green and active . Starting with the top of Callisto’s head, trace over just the lines of her hair and face and then stop. Right-click to end a line and left-click to start another. Be as gratuitous as you want with the vertices in the lines since they’re only going to be used for reference.

I knew I couldn’t pull off the free-flowing design very easily with a limited number of triangles.
