Using masks for fine details by Gavin Goulden

To help speed things up, and keep the details accurate, I like to use a mask based off of a grayscale texture that marks the peaks and valleys of the surface and allows you to push them in or out using Deformation > Inflate. This technique helps lay down a nice base layer of detail that is far more interesting than just surface 'noise' and allows you to build from that using normal sculpting methods. Adding a final pass of surface detail to your model can make a world of difference, but overdo it, or have unnatural details, and the effect is ruined Using masks to create fine details.
