Sculpting a Tribal Totem

  • Difficulty:Intermediate

Displacement maps can make a sculptor's job easy.

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!
