In the following 3D-coat tutorials, The Candyfloss Kid created the basic 3D-Coat Brush Sculpting Principles and provides a quick tour of the 3D-Coat Brushes by their practical applications and functions.
3D-Coat Brush Sculpting Principles
From CandyFloss Kid: A quick tour of some of the main sculpting brushes in 3D Coat. A comparison is drawn with related brushes in ZBrush by functional methodology. For example, what are the brushes in 3D-Coat that are similar to ZBrush’s Standard Brush (organic builder ) , Clay Buildup Brushes (planar builders) , Trim Dynamics (chiselers), Polish Brushes and Movers?
Having a mental map of tools by main function is helpful as most modeling tasks can be achieved with a basic toolset. If you have a familiarity with ZBrush but not yet 3D-Coat these comparison may be of help in getting you up to speed with some of 3D-Coat’s brushes by function. NB: There’s a wee Addendum after the main video on using brush alphas when sculpting.
