Most people typically think of using
displacements in layout, however displacement techniques can be used in modeler to sculpt and create there as well. Many also
do not know that Endormorphs in layout can be driven using texture maps.
In Modeler:
1. Deforming geometry using texture maps
2. Deforming geometry using the airbrush tool
3. Deforming geometry using weight maps.

In Layout:
1. Deforming Geometry using Displacement maps
2. Deforming Geometry using Bump Displacement
3. Deforming Geometry using Normal Displacment
4. Driving Endomorphs using Texture maps

Excellent stuff. Looks like you've been busy. I see you have quite a few more tutorials available now. Now I need to update my wish list or is that a want list, no... I think its a need list. :D Keep up the excellent work.
