Sculpting Workflows in Blender

by Justin Marshall

In this course, we'll learn about the basic sculpt brush and modify settings like brush size and strength. Continuing on, we'll learn about the different stroke types and working with symmetry. Software required: Blender 2.72b.

Continuing on, we'll learn about the different stroke types and working with symmetry. We'll also learn to set up a multi-resolution sculpt and go over the functionality of the different brushes. We'll learn to mask out areas of our mesh and to use textures in our sculpting process. We'll finish up by learning to use Dynamic Topology to sculpt a mesh without having to worry about giving it enough resolution. Once you finish this Blender training, you'll have a much better idea of how to work with sculpting tools as well as how to integrate them into your own work. Software required: Blender 2.72b.
