Great affordable way to get into digital sculpting

So this is my first time getting my feet wet with digital sculpting. I took the plunge and bough the Mac app, the iOS app, and Yam Pad to make my iPad Pro a drawing tablet. Great investment of $25 overall. It's very user friendly, just patiently play with it and find something to model and keep at it, it will catch on. I took my model and imported it into Cheetah 3D for rigging and texturing. It worked fairly well, but still it's a voxel modeler and Cheetah 3D is a polygon modeler. I couldn't really do UV wrapping with it. That said, I'd love to see them collaborate with the makers of Cheetah 3D to make a seamless transition between voxel and polygon modeling. Both apps have a lot in common in that they have very accessible interfaces for people getting their feet wet with modeling. It would also be nice to be able to texture with your own materials inside Sculptura. Look forward to seeing this app grow and develop.

Beautiful finish, nice comprehensive sculpting app

I’m a 2D artist (mostly paint) and have wanted to get started in digital sculpting for a while. So far this has been a great intro for producing very pro looking pieces without a steep learning curve. It seems to do everything that I want it to do so far. The renders look great, with a nice finish.

Developer Response ,

Thanks Rereverb! Bringing digital sculpture to new artists, without needing a lot of technical complexity, has been one of our main goals, so that's great to hear :)
