SharpConstruct v0.12 RC1 organic modeler adds adjustable shading with OpenGL Shading Language

SharpConstruct is an OpenGL API-based 3D modeling program that paint depths on to polygon models in real-time. Unlike traditional modeling programs, SharpConstruct makes it easy to model organic shapes. The process is similar to painting on a canvas in a traditional 2D image program, but with an added dimension. Depth is simply brushed onto the model, offering an easy way to create highly detailed meshes. The new v0.12 RC1 features a Windows port (in addition to Linux), a masking tool to improve modeling and deformation control, interactive deformation controls, curve-based brush control, adjustable shading with OpenGL Shading Language vertex shaders, and support for the Lightwave object format.
