So for the first time i have attempted to use Mudbox. From what i have seen so far it is a fantastic programme and i found it really fun to use. I have imported the Kernal tree for some sculpting and am quite pleased of the results so far. I will have to re arrange the vines as the sculpting seems to have eaten it a bit but thats nothing major. For this model i used the wax and smooth stamps. For the wax stamp i turned the falloff pretty high to give the effect of bark which seems to have worked reasonably well and then used the smooth stamp to take the sharpness off of the model.
