I've seen artist using incredibly complex geometry using strategically placed cages with subdivision surfaces applied. What do you call the technique used to modeling complex geometry using very minimal cages?

    $\begingroup$ Modeling from zero? Manipulating a finished work further? You may want to see the Lattice Modifier, Mesh Deform Modifier, Sculpting. $\endgroup$ – atomicbezierslinger Mar 29 '19 at 23:12

  • $\begingroup$ a technique using subdivision mod to create complex shapes using a incredibly small amounts of cuts. the created cage seems so basic, it appears deformed without the sub mod. $\endgroup$ – Gustavo Guzman Mar 31 '19 at 0:47
  • $\begingroup$ Its a very minimalistic way of box modeling, prior to subdivision. $\endgroup$ – Gustavo Guzman Mar 31 '19 at 0:55
