Gestural Sculpting with Blender
Rough, Rapid, Yet Recognizable
Gestural sculpting is like sketching in 3D. And just like sketching, the core idea is to achieve essential shapes and forms in a quick-n-dirty fashion. Precision is not the goal; rather the goal is a rough but recognizable sculpture.
The benefit of learning to sculpt gesturally is an increase in speed but also rapid familiarity with shape-forming. It's a valuable approach if you'd like to level up general sculpting proficiency. But if you're interested human anatomy, gestural sculpting is a great way to boost your anatomy formation.
