Gleb Alexandrov is on a roll! After he just posted '9 ways to destroy things', he released 'Sculpting a Tribal Totem' on Blender Cookie.
In this video Gleb Alexandrov employs a unique approach to shaping a carved, wooden totem. Watch how he uses a simple greyscale texture on a basic tear-drop mesh to achieve the majority of the totem’s form. Then a quick remeshing and it’s time to polish the off the sculpture’s details. A really cool workflow you don’t want to miss!
