    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.

    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.
