Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Sculpt mode, part of Blender Essential Training.
…A more interactive way to do organic modelling is to use Blender's sculpt tool.…Now this tool has changed just a little bit in version 2.7,…so we're going to be using that version for this lesson.…Now the sculpt tool is highly interactive, so I added a little bit more density to…this particular character, and that'll give us room to sculpt a little bit more.…So let's go ahead and select this character and go into Sculpt Mode.…Now we've played already with Edit Mode, but Sculpt Mode is its own mode.…
So let's go ahead into that.…Let's go ahead and pull out this window, so we can see what we are doing.…Now when I go into Sculpt Mode, notice how the cursor changes.…This gives us a brush-based interface with which to sculpt the character.…So all I have to do is just left-click and drag, and…you can see that I'm actually sculpting this character.…Now, I'm going to undo that using Ctrl+Z,…and let's take a look at some of these tools here.…Now, probably the most important one here is the one at the top, the radius, and…
