im working through the joan of arc tutorial (ace) and im cool so far, but i cant seem to get the underarms right. im a bit confused by what appears to be differences in the mesh from one pic to the other

I posted my Joan awhile ago, but I don't know what happened to the thread. That tutorial helped me a lot. Anyways here's how mine turned out:

setting an edge to be invisible, however dose not cause that vert to go away.
you can either take that vert and collapse/weld it to one of the side ones
or you can use edit poly and just remove the edge and then remove the vert
i'd recommend edit poly

i made it invisible, and that seemed to be ok so far, but i may need to go with your suggestion if it causes me probs in the future
phynius- i just started a new job so i havnt been working on it much, but im gonna make her a futuristic incarnation of joan of arc, still gothic but in a futuristic way, with robotic cherubs holding her ammo/ sword and the like.
when i make some progress i'll post!

if you leave the vert, it may cause a bit of wierdness when you later apply smoothing.
perhaps it will not be significant, but if you're gonna leave it, i'd suggest to keep it connected via some edge, at least that way you know what manner by which the manifold will smooth, otherwise its kinda like leaving that floating point up to serendipity and hoping when you apply smoothing it won't create some small artifact in that area

you are completely right, like my mum says, theres no point doing anything unless you do it properly!
i'll just weld the lose vert to the one next to it
