Do you have sculptors in your family?

Hi families! Do you have artists in your family? Any sculptor among your ancestors? I love sculptors for one main reason. They take a piece of something, like a piece of wood, a rock, you name it, or they start with a pile of clay, and they will find a way to create a piece of art by adding or subtracting material. They are magicians.

A few weeks ago, David (one of the great dads within 3D Roundhouse) talked to me about sculpting. I found the subject quite strange at that time. Did he found some stone to play with in his garden? Had he put a big trunk in his living room and started to smash it, cut it and scratch it to create a funny wood statue inspired from his daughter? Not at all. He was talking about sculpting in 3D on his computer.

Blender can sculpt!

Long time ago, I have done it using Blender. I found it interesting but it didn’t become a passion for me. As David has aroused my curiosity, I decided to check the evolution of the sculpting tools in Blender. That’s the beauty with this opensource software. You feel very much at home once you know it a little bit. But you have many other choices available if you want to quit your comfort zone and challenge yourself. And developers take an immense pleasure to continuously improve Blender. Great guys! To know more about the new possibilities with the Blender Sculpt Tools bundle, I decided to meet the daunting Dyntopo.

But who is Dyntopo?

Is he a nice guy or a monster? Is he Italian or Colombian? To see him, they told me to check my Symmetry, if I have Accumulated enough and got the “Ctrl” key to subtract material. I arrived on time in front of a huge grey door. “Radius of the brush” was the password. The Snake Hook lets me in. I was finally in the Sculpt Mode room ready to meet Dyntopo…

Will your host survive the test and see his son again? Could it be possible to learn some incredible and frightening secrets? Will Dyntopo be magnanimous or dreadful?

To know the end (or maybe the beginning of something), stay tuned in the days to come. I will do my best to keep you up to date (maybe a video or two). If something terrible happen, never forget to do great for you and others. Life is sometimes shorter than expected.

See you soon, maybe…
