wanting to get into 3d computer sculpting..
 
I'm an abstract artist, paintings on canvas/paper. http://abstractsbybrian.com and http://abstractsbybs.blogspot.com/

I want a program to simulate stone and/or clay and let me sculpt it on my computer in 3d - is there such a program that won't cost an arm and a leg?


I run Windows 7 64 bit

thanks
Brian S

[There is a hardware/software system like that; the Phantom Omni Arm and Claytools software. it's made by Sensable Technologies, and it gives you the ability to actually feel the thing you're working on and sculpt it in real time. It's not cheap, but it's reasonably priced for what it does. There's nothing else like it, or even close.]

Zbrush will probably sort you out.

Z brush is wonderful, and has lots of bells and whistles, but Mudbox is much easier to learn. They are both wonderful programs and I am sure you will love them. I wrote a book on transfering the traditional process to digital means. It is called ]Digital Sculpting with Mudbox: Essential Tools and techniques for artists. The one thing I love about the book is there is an entire chapter about getting the object out of the computer. And check out this video that I created on how the program works. if the you tube video does not come up on the forum you can find it at http://www.youtube.com/user/sculptor.../0/78rxEAicgpM

Sometimes I like to use both programs just to help me get my sketches for my client. Here are some links on this
Using Poser, Daz and Zbrush there are others on this blog about these tools and processes. Hope this helps.

Try ZBrush, Mudbox is more expensive and much more hardware intensive than ZBrush. If you don't have a dedicated 3D workstation computer ZBrush will be much kinder to you.
