Autodesk recently released a new iPad app for novice 3D modelers, 123D Creature, which allows creators to use gesture controls to mold monsters out of virtual clay.
Creatures are designed from the ground up, with sculpted features and painted-on fur, feathers, and skin. Completed projects can be exported as an image, a 3D model, or printed using a 3D printer.
-Technology previously only available to professional 3D artists can now be easily used by anyone to create incredible 3D creatures from scratch directly on the iPad.
-Biped or quadruped, wings, fins, horns, claws or paws. If you can imagine it you can make it real in 123D Creature.
-Easy to use yet extremely powerful skeleton builder makes creating 3D creatures as easy as drawing a stick figure.
-3D texturing and painting lets you apply your own photos directly onto the skin of your creature.
123D Creature can be downloaded from the App Store for $1.99 on sale. The app is regularly priced at $7.99. [Direct Link]
