Nice and clean job.
Really clever use of the "two step" subdivision on the hole.
I use that trick a lot. ;)

What happens when you SUbD some cubes then hit them with Clothworks.

May not be as cool as Box’s squished ballon things .. but needed a vintage dish soap bottle. SubD the best tool for the job. And to all you youngsters the bottles weren’t clear way back in the day. :lol: ;) :fro:

There is a lot more skill involved in making a shape that matches something in the real world than there is in my random musings. :thumb:

Thanks HornOxx. Fooled about trying some other approaches just for practice. Abandoned other ways for SubD and “bing bang” it was done. :lol:

I believe I've found a fun retopolgy workaround in Sketchup :roflmao:
Of course is not as powerful as some dedicated tools like Topogun, but it can get the job done on simple objects without switching to a different software.

I simply smooth all edges from the triangulated mess, then I draw some pseudo-quad topology with TOS, extract that as a group, do a quick cleanup using VT2 "merge close vertices", and then use the most overlooked feature of QFT (convert wireframe into quads) to create a quadmesh to subdivide.
The smoothed mesh is just a tiny bit smaller of course because of the subdivision, so you may want to compensate for that with a little JPP.
