    When I'm scaling the cone vertices, it started to scale in a rounded fashion out of nowhere, instead of making the sharp pointed vertices when normally scaling. Almost like it's in a soft select format. Does anyone know how to turn it off?

    Ugh another tutorial about a terrible anvil. Before teaching people, first actually research how an anvil works. Andrew Price did it wrong too, now the whole internet is flushed with terrible 3d anvils.
    Kudos for telling people how to do 3d, but please, no anvils unless you know how they work,

    Hey Mike, love your videos. I'd to see more character based tutorials – starting them off in maya, then applying some different textures in other softwares from substance painter.

    Hello Mike new in Maya. I was wondering why do you prefer extra edge loops to hard edges instead of creasing before smoothing. Is there a particular advantage or it's just simple another way to do it.
