Everything You Need to Know About Retopology in Blender

Jamie Dunbar covers some ways for retopology in Blender.

Sculpting is only part of the equation in production; the other is retopology. But retopology can be a difficult task. Blender’s tools aren’t the most intuitive for most.

In this three-part series from Dragonboots Studios’ Jamie Dunbar, he has a look at some of the best retopo tools currently available, including Blender’s inbuilt tools, the free Speed Retopo addon, and the paid Retopoflow addon.

There are free downloads of both the Spyro and Gremlin models featured in the videos so that you can practice your retopo as a bonus. (Use the code “free” at checkout to download the file free of charge)
