the barbarian was started in dynamesh and then retopo'd(re meshed) in Z-Brush topology.
I'd love to speak on whats he for..but i cant. not yet anyhow. :)
I REALLY want that q re-mesher plugin! but in the mean time? current Z brush remesh tools work just fine. that said...i kinda DON'T look forward to the Land mate . but fear nothing!
resistance is the enemy!
just practice !!
