    Hi,
    I'm working with Sculptris for two days now and I'm totally excited about this modeler. If you haven't tried it yet, you definetly should. It's for free!
    Here are a few pictures of my first try. I'm not sure whicht material I'll use to print it, guess stainless steel. I made the legs thicker as natural, so it should work.
    The scarab from Elytra looks pretty awesome in stainless steel.

    WOW! I haven't ever gotten results like that from Sculptris. That's fantastic!

    Thanks man! It works nice with the Wacom Intuos graphics tablet. You get much better results with this.

    Ahh. I've been thinking of finding a tablet, but I haven't yet bit the bullet. The one you mention isn't quite as cheap as I'd like. (http://www.wacom.com/en/Products/Intuos/Small.aspx) I really would need to try it out before committing to a purchase. I have to imagine that some things, like texturing or sculpting, would be much easier with a tablet.
