We added 5 new lessons (over 1 hour of new content) to chapter 6 "Cute Creature Details", of the Master 3D Sculpting in Blender course update.
In the new lessons, we finalize the detail sculpting part of the cute creature, by adding the fur and other fine details.

Cubic Worlds: New Download Section
We updated the download section for the Cubic Worlds course, for a better download experience and smaller file sizes.
- One Section: Instead of heaving the download section for each chapter separate, we now added all into one download section.
- Smaller File Size: The original course download was ~40 GB in size, which we now reduced to ~23 GB, with the same 2k video quality.
- Low Resolution Videos (optional): If 23 GB is still too much, we also added the videos in a slightly lower resolution (1080p), which reduces the full course download size to ~13 GB.
