With the ever increasing power and improvement with technology, smart phones are able to push more pixels and more polies with each generation. What does this mean to us as 3D Artists? Well it means we can have 3D modeling packages like the iSculptor app for the iPhone.
iSculptor is a 3D modeling application developed by Lost Pencil (an animation and digital art studio) for the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad, which allows you to create and modify your own 3D models.
What makes this app even cooler is that you are able to import and export your 3D meshes in and out of the iSculptor application as an OBJ file. The only drawback is that you have to use a Mac only application called iSculptorNet (which is free). Lost Pencil are working on a Windows based version of iSculptorNet, but in the meantime, both Windows and Mac users are able to e-mail the files via the application.

The iSculptor application does have some limitations, such as only supporting tris and quads, a soft limit of 2500 tris in the scene, and a few others that can be found on their site.
A full list of tutorial videos can be found here which will give you a good indication of what the application is capable of and how it performs certain modeling functions.

As an artist, how useful woud you find an application like this on your phone?
