This is the making-of for my video: vimeo.com/53493770
It includes some explanation about:
- the materials I used
- the cell fracture add-on
- the skin modifier
- the softbody simulation for inverted gravity simulation
If you don't like videos, you can find the text how-to here:
And the Blend file is at the bottom of the page.
For more detailled explanation about softbodies, you can look at my old tutorial (it's for Blender 2.49 but the settings are very similar):
This is just a quick video demonstrating some sculpt brush settings I came up with in blender that work pretty nicely for refining planes in your sculpts and smoothing transitions between surfaces, somewhat similar to the trim dynamic brush in ZBrush.
You can download these brushes from Blendswap here: http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/67891
