      Blender vs Autodesk Mudbox opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Blender is still a legitimate alternative to Autodesk Mudbox, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Not specifically for sculpting or painting. Hard to understand.

      Blender is a much more mathimatial tool for creating 3D models which dose not work well with tablets Whereas mudbox is designed for tablet use with more natural reactions to creating models

      MUCH more complex than mudbox, which is fairly easy to use. May be better as it has far more funcionality, but I wouldn't call it an alternative.

      Mudbox is a sculpting tool. It does 3d stuff, but it's mostly for sculpting, and sculpting-based modeling. Blender is a general 3d modeling toolbox. Its sculpting tools are not intended to replace Zbrush or Mudbox unless they're all you have.
