      Blender vs Sculptris opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Blender is a great alternative to Sculptris.
      Not only can you sculpt with Blender, you can model, texture, simulate and animate with Blender, along with camera tracking and thousands more features. Definitely one of the best out there.
      Positive comment over 4 years ago

      Blender is a 3D modeling program, while Sculptris is a 3D sculpting program. The end result may be similar, but the actual process is entirely different.

    2. Wings 3D is a subdivision modeler inspired by Nendo and Mirai from Izware.
      Wings 3D vs Sculptris opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Wings 3D is still a legitimate alternative to Sculptris, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      This is a modelling program, sculptris is a sculpting program. While they both end at a 3d output, the method to get there is completely different.
      Negative comment almost 7 years ago

      This program is mostly aimed at polygonal modelling. While they can both produce a 3d model, Sculptris is specifically aimed at 3d Sculpting and texture painting, something Wings 3d does not do.
