I have a couple of good news. There’s nothing like work side by side with a genius, thanks to Andew’s help I have being able to improve recently added LiveClay based brushes and make them more robust and implement several others that can be very useful and time saving, but let’s images speak by themselves 😉
New Tangent Smooth brush:
This brush provide a wide range of smoothing/relaxation options, with no depth it improves topology but does not shrink the mesh, as it maintains the original shape as much as possible and all relaxation happen over the surface, with depth it perform smoothing with a user controlled shrinkage factor, very useful for clean topology and/or more fine tune of the mesh than the standard Smooth
Improved Tube brush
This tool grows surface in the normal direction, so it behaves like the Build up voxel brush and can be very useful to grow new geometry and even to make columns and holes 😉 !
Improved Crease brush
Crease is a must in any sculpt pippeline so we ensre our implementtion is very robust and powerful, it combune a Crease/Pinch behaviour 😉
Improved Snake brush
Oh yes, we have made Snake tool much more robust and does not flatten as we rotate the pen as before, this is a beautiful brush 😉
New Smudge brush
Smudge is very important, so finally is implemented in Surface tools, it allows some how to mix and displace the mesh surface
New Swirl brush
this brush can be very useful and time saving to achieve this curling effects 😉
The following tools can create self intersecting geometry that can be improved with previous tools but many objects in nature for their complexity resemble those structures so they can be quite useful and achieve results that otherwise would be impossible or very difficult to get with the combination of previous tools, also as Alchemy has shown, chaotic drawing can be quite inspiring an help to release imagination, so feel free to toy with this tools 😉
New Rope brush
This tools can extrude very interesting rope like extensions but according to smoothing and detail level can vary from organic to mechanic look!
New Tendril brush
This is a very interesting brush to model complex extensions ranging from roots, to flying piece of clothes in a single action 😉
If you like it drop a comment ;)!
