Select BLOCK or SOFT style to give your mesh a unique shape. Once the style is selected, it is necessary to convert to mesh to be able to adjust the AXIS. Remember to select one or the other.
Once converted to mesh, you can start playing with the AXIS until you achieve the desired shape.
With this group of modifiers, called BLOWFISH you can give a round look to the mesh. You can use the factor gently to change the look as well. Once finished convert to mesh. Do not use the BLOWFISH more than 4 times on the same mesh.
