Sculptris
Easily create and paint top quality 3D character models

Sculptris is a 3D character modelling tool with a difference: anyone can use it. You don't have to understand complex technical jargon, or explore endless dialogs to get it working: it's actually possible to create something interesting in minutes, even if you've no modelling experience at all.

The key to this simplicity is the Sculptris interface, which is perhaps as close to sculpting as you'll get on a PC. Launch the program and you're presented with a clay ball; click and drag with the mouse and you'll deform the ball accordingly - it's all very intuitive.

An interesting plus point is that the program mirrors your work on the other side of the ball. So if you start by forming an eye, for instance, then the second will automatically appear. Add a nose and mouth and you've created your first basic 3D character, all in a few seconds.

There are plenty of tools to vary how the sculpting process actually works, options like Flatten, Grab, Smooth, Pinch and Inflate. But again, while these are tweakable, to a degree, there's no great complexity here, and you'll probably learn by just "doing": selecting an option, trying it out and just seeing what happens. It doesn't matter if you make a mistake, an Undo option will quickly reverse your last steps.

There are more advanced options, if you need them. You can sculpt with a range of different materials, for instance; paint on your model to add colour or texture; or maybe import a model as a starting point (Wavefront OBJ files are supported). While none of these are too complicated, Sculptris has little in the way of built-in help, so if you run into a problem you can't solve then we'd recommend checking out the Sculptris forum for advice.
 

Verdict:

An exceptionally easy-to-use 3D modelling tool, that's capable of producing some amazing work

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
