Silo has a great suite of modeling tools, but with this tutorial we want to introduce you to another, often overlooked, aspect of the application and those are its sculpting tools. Before we dive in and begin sculpting we will start the course by looking at how to quickly configure Silo to work in harmony with a Wacom Cintiq. This is the hardware I will be using throughout the tutorial but its important to state that you can easily follow along using a keyboard and mouse, or any other graphics tablet. Once the environment is set we will then take a basic Hoola Girl model and work over each element, enhancing the surface detail using just the Paint Displacement tools. You can expect to learn with this tutorial that Silo is more than just a modeling package. Its sculpting tools may be basic, but with time and effort you can achieve great results in a short amount of time. Software required: Silo 2.2.

We will start the cast by looking at how to quickly configure Siler toe work in harmony with a Wah Comes antique. This is a hard where I will be using throughout the course, but with that said, it's important to stay that you could easily follow along using the keyboard amount or any other graphics tablet. Once the environment is set, we will then take a basic hula Girl model on work over each element, enhancing the surface detail, using just the paint displacement tools. But I hope to show you with this course is that silo is more than just a modeling package. It's sculpting tools, maybe basic, But with time and effort, you can achieve great results in a short amount of time. So that's the introduction out of the way. You know who I am on what we'll be doing on this cost. So let's move on to the next video and start sculpting.
