Hello! I am a bit confused about 3d modeling, 3d sculpting, clay scumpting... Can I create awesome sculptures using just blender or would I have to pick something like zbrush? When I heard blender was for creating, modeling and animating I thought this software was kind of focused on creating sculptures and models. Now I realize many people sculpt in other software, or even clay sculpt before working on blender so... what about all the mesh and sculpture tools in blender? Are they second rate?!

    Hey there, sorry about the late reply. Blender is great at sculpting! It and ZBrush are on different levels, but are also suitable for different things. Blender is more suited for independent artists that either choose not, or can't afford multiple speciality tools. ZBrush on the other hand is mostly specialized in sculpting. For a good intro to Blender's sculpting check out Kent Trammell's Digital Sculpting Fundamentals: https://cgcookie.com/course/fundamentals-of-digital-sculpting/
