I cannot describe how much I love this add-on...
 
I've release a new add-on to improve the modeling workflow. It's called F2 and a thread, including video documentation, can be found at BlenderArtists. Enjoy!

+Antony Riakiotakis Blender is need of some serious mesh modeling enhancement. While most other apps are at a similar level, there are ways to simulate surfacing like with NURBS but with polygons. Hexagon for example has such great mesh tools.

Here's another anatomy sculpt, this time without any symmetry. I feel this gives a lot more energy to the sculpt, even if it weren't posed.

Its art, the maturity rating for art is only how the viewer intends to perceive the artwork.

Found a lost dog hiding in a drain pipe at Highland Springs and Oak Valley Parkway in Beaumont California. Brown dog, about 60-60 lbs, big ears.

Poor thing is terrified.

Last sculpt sketch for the night. Not really happy with this one but it's time to put the pen down.

After two years of planning and work we have just announced my largest project ever. 

This is the CG Cookie workshops platform, which is looking to really raise the bar on 3D Animation and VFX training for Blender. 

The first workshop, which is available for pre-registration now, is mine on Mastering Modeling in Blender. This is an online workshop that looks to give students a solid foundation and experience for everything they need to know about working with subdivision surface modeling.
