So I fiddled with the bunny - I had forgotten what a small scale that thing is.
I basically made an array of the vertices, another array of the indexes, and
then a final array describing the actual triangles, pretty much undoing the
Only a few normals were pointing outward, which means that somehow almost all of
my normals are reversed. So one character later (-) I was able to render the
bunny with almost all of the normals facing outward.
I guess there's a way to do a breadth first search and correct the normals that
don't point in the same direction as all the others.
I might try adding an interior_texture to the triangles next to see what
But I'm super pleased that I made it this far, not fully understanding how
everything works with respect to calculating the determinant of the
