cover a rough surface

Dear Blender Users,

I have a Body (attached Picture) and i want to cover it`s surface with an additional layer, so the surface gets smooth and similar to a real geometry…

Is there any function i can do this with?
I think I cant use the smoothing Tools, because the volume of this Body may not get less.

i just got started with blender and downloaded the newest Version (2.71)

Any help would be highly appreciated!

Cheers Makkus



Thank you PyroGXPilot,

this was actually a big help!

Do you have any idea, where i can download the Addon grease pencil Retopology for V2.71?
I think this tool would be pretty helpfull as well.

Thank you!
