Anyone have any good resources for sculpting clothes, armor, and the like. The more tailored to blender the workflow is the better.I'm most using "mask extract" and the "shrink wrap" modifier at the moment.

>>574219Awesome, I appreciate all the help and links. Thankfully I have a pretty decent rig so I can work with a high poly count and AO. So, when I use the shrink wrap I should put an object, like a sphere, over the body I've sculpted, then begin working out the rough shapes of the armor from the sphere? also, I plan on drawing a lot of the details(like pic) and doing traditional animation over the base mesh so at this point I just need to get the shapes and proportions right.
