3DT 11: Sculptris

Sculptris is a free sculpting tool which I believe has been bought by Pixologic (owners of Zbrush) and is now available here.

Sculptris is very different to Blender and while Blender now has a sculpt mode, they work in very different ways.

Sculptris’ claim to fame is dynamic tessellation allowing for varying levels of detail (making sculpting less hardware intensive).

Here’s a quick sculpt I cooked up today. I saved a version every few minutes starting from the middle out.

Sculptris is just fun, it’s really easy to create something from scratch, even if you have no preconceptions, I’d recommend it to any creative type.
