I’ve been using time-lapses to study the techniques of other artists, and I’ve seen sculptors of great skill split into two general categories and was wondering why the two methods existed.
Group A tends to use a single mesh with dyntopo to form the entire sculpture. One example of this workflow is found in this video.
Group B on the other hand, tends to add separate meshes to the collection/layer and sculpt them around the other mesh as seen in this video.
I was wondering why an artist would opt for one method or the other, and whether there was a middle ground - i.e. adding additional meshes as a component of the existing mesh.
