Drawing a curve leg question?


#1

Hello folks, I am trying to get more creative and practicing drawing nice curved legs. I came across this really nice shaped leg and having troubles trying to draw it similar?

I tried to draw it with using the followme tool but did not work to well!! LOL!

Any other suggestions? I know there is probably a easy way to do it? Will keep trying!

Thank you!

Jay

You have two different profiles. The inside curve and the outside curve so you would do it with two different Follow Me operations and Intersect Faces. I’m away from my computer so I can’t demonstrate at the moment. If no one else does, I’ll do it when I get back.

Maybe you can get some ideas watching what DaveR does here, I’m not sure if it’s the same case.

Not sure if this helps, but I didn’t use follow me neither intersect faces, so I’m probably missing something.

Thanks Dave, look forward to seeing the best way to do this from your perspective? I also did what spawn suggested .

Thank you!

Did Spawn’s method give you the leg you wanted?

@DaveR knows a lot about woodworking, I know nothing, I think he proposed something like this, please correct me if I’m wrong:

Using followme tool to apply the profile of the inside curve over C and D and then
Using followme tool to apply the profile of the outside curve over A and B.
Then select all and intersect faces with the selection and then remove extra geometry.

with this result
