Bevel after Boolean, a character build.

I made this using the Bevel after Boolean addon written by Rodinkov llya.

The addon allows you to boolean geometry together and then run it to create clean beveled seams where the geometry meets.

I wouldn't normally model an organic character this way, it was a test see if I could use it for non mechanical subjects, you couldn't comfortably animate this creature because of the polygon flow, however for a still character sculpt of this type it's viable, and you could re-topologize to get better poly-flow.

BlenderPro - A template for 3D creatives who might want to try Blender?

There's almost too many things going on with Blender these days, it can make your head spin.

Having given it a spin, I really appreciate the ease of use here, however, there are some functions of Blender that seem hidden away by the template, or perhaps I'm not clue-y enough to find them. I look forward to more tutorials from the author, especially about modeling

Heavypoly workflow for Blender

It's a schizophrenic time for me and Blender at the moment, with Speedflow up-dates and the new 2.8 version in the works, I probably shouldn't look into this alternative workflow tutorial by Heavypoly.

If you go to the video on his channel, you are given the links to a bunch of config scripts and a startup file to install into a current daily build version of Blender. This is his own unique layout, pie menu tools and other nifty things to get even the newest Blender user up to speed. I'm new to Blender myself so I'm interested in trialing this cool work-flow to see if it fits.

I'm only a little into the tutorial as of this writing, but so far it's been nice. His teaching style is very clear and the pie menus, tools and layout make Blender feel like a new software.
