Modeling may provide some benefits when it comes to making models but might turn tricky with more intricate details that need be added in later stages. For those looking into this as their career option-sculptors can create elaborate forms using only clay or other material without any digital assistance at all!
Hard surface sculpting is a natural workflow for many users, but it can be difficult to manage and retopology might have happen. Hard-surface sculptures do provide intricate details that are more difficult with soft material like clay or even plaster of Paris (Popsicle stick).
