I'm tryning to make a smooth violin top and am having trouble raising the middle...like a dome, while keeping the edges of the violin top level. Any ideas are greatly appreciated?

– Are you hard modeling or sub patching
– do you have enough geometry to leave the edge unselected but still lift
the centre
– do you know how to use the fall ofts in say the 'move tool'
– do you know how to upload a picture of your current geometry

spline patching is another way :)

currently I'm working on a violin too, I use a flat poly subdived in 10 x 5 poly's, subpatch that and than started raising the points one by one to the desirable height

it takes some work and time but it looks good, I try to post an image when I'm home this evening if you want
