Popular freeware sculpting tool Sculptris has been in active development since 2009, but has now been brought under the banner of Pixologic, the creators of ZBrush.
While Scultpris is more intuitive and powerful than most of the sculpting tools you might find bundled into another package, it is nice to also see that you can translate skills picked up in Sculptris to its big sister ZBrush when you outgrow the pixel count and toolset of this handy learning tool. There are a number of 3D artists who always start in Sculptris when they are testing out ideas, before moving the digital model into another package to finish and texture it.
Sculptris provides an excellent gateway into the exciting world of 3D. It’s features are easy to learn, even for someone with no experience in digital art, yet robust enough for creating base models that can then be refined in other applications, such as ZBrush.
Take your art to the next level
ZBrush is the most widely-used digital sculpting application in today’s market and is the industry Standard. When you’re ready to take your Sculptris creations to the next level for detailing, rendering and integration into even the largest of projects, we welcome you to ZBrush with its host of robust, unique and revolutionary tools.
When you’re ready to take art to the next level, the skills that you’ve learned in Sculptris easily translate to ZBrush.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
