Pixologic, the maker of the ZBrush software is pleased to announce the latest release of Sculptris (for Windows and Mac).
Pixologic has been recognized for its ground-breaking innovation for the past ten years. ZBrush is one of the mainstays of our industry with and tools that are as user friendly as they are powerful and natural-feeling. The development and latest release of Sculptris is consistent with the Pixologic ethos and spirit to help artists both shine at and enjoy creating art.
Sculptris introduces a dynamic tessellation system, giving its user the capability to sculpt or paint freely on any part of the surface without having to worry about underlining geometry. With Sculptris, triangles are automatically added as needed, and only to the areas where a stroke has been applied to the surface.
Sculptris is an elegant and simple 3D modeling solution, offering artists a platform to harness their imagination and create 3D sculpts in a way that is unique to the digital world.
Tomas Pettersson, the brainchild behind Sculptris said in an interview, “I trust that, with this version, Sculptris will be more accessible for all people on both PC’s and Mac’s. Everyone should be able to sculpt!”
Users can do just about anything that’s possible with real clay. For example, they can pull, twist and pinch the surface, easily adding volume as needed without the rigorous attention to underlying structure that is typically associated with 3D modeling programs.
Pixologic envisions Sculptris as an entry level ‘eye opener’ for a new generation of artists wishing to explore 3D sculpting and digital creation. Fun to use, it’s also a truly effective tool that can be embraced by hobbyists and professional artists, alike.
The navigation controls in Sculptris have been enhanced from earlier releases of the software and are now similar to those in ZBrush. This makes it effortless to go between the two applications while also helping Sculptris to serve as a stepping stone toward mastery of ZBrush.
All are invited to share their creations in the Sculptris forum at ZBrushCentral. The forum provides a common ground for Sculptris artists to share and communicate with other Sculptris users, as well as the many industry-leading artists who frequent ZBrushCentral.
