I built a Simple Mode for the interface till the new one is functional. This should make things a lot easier for you in the next release. The quick help coming soon and basic tutorials will be using this. The Assembly and Sculpt modes will be on the same screen to further simplify matters.

I exported some of the models created in Neobarok into Sketchfab and you can now visualize them in 3D. The model Pandemonia and full tutorial will also be offered as part of the Humanoid perk (and above): http://igg.me/at/neobarok
Two weeks remain if you want to contribute to keeping Neobarok free!

Here is a quick update on the crowdfunding campaign:
Many have demanded more details about the Book: it will contain mostly art, both digital and traditional illustrations. A small selection is shown below:
Some of the artworks come with the process of creation, from sketch to digital painting, and for a couple this will be extended to the final 3D model in Neobarok like the “Erebus”:
Traditional sketch (left), digital illustration (right), Neobarok 3D model (bottom):
Here is also a live modeling session in Neobarok, showing the improved Tube tool available in the next release, used to create the horns of a character. Painting with light on tubes (horns) vs general meshes (head) is also shown.
The automatic Chain tool is also part of the next release. Below is an example where Chains were drawn directly on the character (same as the Tubes) and were further sculpted using the same tools as the ones shown in the previous video:
Two more models are added to the Humanoid package: the male and female 3D head models sculpted in Neobarok and used in the above videos are now part of all perks superior to 20$. These models can help to quickly set up your character and try various techniques:

Thank you all for the great response and support, 25 artworks are sold!
Crowdfunding rewards for Neobarok are partly based on some of my original art. I decided to post the art online in advance so that people who follow the development of the software or my art can choose their favorite before the campaign starts. This is a one-time-only event where every framed original artwork comes at a unique price of 150$ + worldwide shipping!
If you choose this art package (the Oneiromancer pack during the campaign), you will receive the following:
- 1 x FRAMED ORIGINAL ART
- 1 x signed printed BOOK with artworks, ideas, techniques
- 3D MODELS & TUTORIALS for a quick start in modeling with Neobarok
- 1 x exclusive HD Wallpaper
For more details you can contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
The original artworks are listed below. They will be framed and ready for display. You can choose the one you want during the whole campaign (unless it is already marked as SOLD). Contact me for further details here or at email@example.com :
A book with art and ideas is included! The book contains 100 pages with traditional and digital artworks, process and techniques into creating imaginary art, and the thoughts and insights that led to the development of Neobarok as a creative tool. Below is a sample from it:
3D MODELS & TUTORIALS
The reward also contains several Neobarok 3D models and complete video tutorials for a quick start in using the software. Below is the fully poseable Humanoid, a base for fast character creation or a reference for artists! The final version will have a few modifications (neutral pose, normal feet, articulated neck…):

A hexabot that will be part of the crowdfunding campaign, along with its making-of tutorial. I will do different types of simple robots and various props (guns, radar etc.) and they will all be included in the starter package during the crowdfunding. Next package will also contain a fully articulated robot-mannequin for fast character creation.
