I would like a small help with an issue that occurs while I try to enter Sculpt mode.
I don't use Dyntopo (don't want to add more faces to my mesh that I have nor to break and add new. I am working with what I have and just wish to "reorganise" them a little bit).
Sadly, I can only add to my mesh, but I can't use subtracting brush effect. The Ctrl doesn't work (opposite to what I am doing) and I can't even find the add/subtract option in my tool panel. What am I missing here? Could someone advice me what to do so that I don't use always Ctrl+Z and do it over until I reach my desired form?

I am new to sculpting, I have watched some tutorials but I just can't find the add/subtract nowhere in "normal"(?) sculpting mode (again, not in dyntopo!).

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: found my problem, it looks like that the F smooth doesn't have an add/subtract option. I just want to smooth a little bit out and then work around that. Sorry for the waste of space.

  • $\begingroup$ You can really spped up workflow by holding Shift to use Smooth brush. Not sure what the reason for it to have Subtract effect; to deepen strokes, use Deepen brush, to flatten - use flattening brushes. Smooth uses smoothing in general so there might not be any opposite effect to it. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jul 29 '16 at 14:14
