Anyone have a clever technique for duplicating folded, rippled organic-looking surfaces like a brain? I've tried several techniques, mostly involving either subpatching/smooth shifting, or creating curves and using Rail Extrude, but I can't get a nice surface that looks anywhere close to a "real" brain. Modeling's always been a struggle for me, I have to admit, so I'm hoping someone who knows Modeler way better than me will have an answer.

Forum search is pretty good, if you know how to use it.

Thanks! That's exactly what I needed. Wow, that tutorial even taught me some things about Modeler.

Yeah, it was late and my own personal brain wasn't working too well. :) I searched for "brain" but not "human brain" and got about thirty pages of results. Oops.
