NEW TUTORIAL: MAKING SLIMY GUTS

  1. Making Some Slimy Guts in Cinema 4D 4 Comments


     

    Today we are going to get our hands dirty with some tangled up dynamic intestines that we are going to create from scratch in Cinema 4D. This one was inspired by a question from Yottaglow in a recent live ASKGSG. Normally I avoid making things editable but there is no way around it in this set up as we are going to be layering up different types of dynamics to get a finished product.

    In this Tutorial we will:

    1. Create some tangled up splines then use dynamics to squish them together

    2. Bake the animation for fast feedback

    3. Dive deep into textures using noises, tension tags, and the layer transform to get that slimy material

    4. Light out scene using HDRI Studio and a self illuminated plane

    5. Find workarounds for no less than 3 bugs/limitations

     

    Part One: Modeling and Dynamics

     

    Part Two: Light and Texturing

  2. Create a Bendy Text Design in Cinema 4D 5 Comments


    In this tutorial we’ll recreate this Scandinavian inspired design in Cinema 4D or Cinema 4D Lite!  It’s a design made up of a piece of text with layers peeling away revealing transparency on the backside of peeled back portions.  We’ll break down how you model all the pieces and set up your text so you can smoothly bend the geometry of your text spline or any other spline you’d like to use.  Next, we’ll texture our object, creating the plastic, glass, and wood materials as well as light the scene.  Finally, we will cover how you can easily iterate by changing the text in the Text Spline Object by using Instances.

    By the way, this tutorial can be followed along using Cinema 4D Lite that comes for FREE with Adobe Creative Cloud!

    And as always, if you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this technique, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!

  3. How to Create Cartoon Mountains in Cinema 4D 4 Comments


    In this tutorial, I’m going to walk you through how you can create some cartoonish mountains.  First I’ll cover the landscape object, followed by how to use a Terrain Mask and Cel Shader to add color to our mountain.  If you’re not familiar with the Cel Shader, be sure to check out this tutorial all about it and how you can use it for flat 2D shading.   Finally, I’ll show you how you can turn your mountain into a low poly one in a click of a button!

    And as always, if you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this technique, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!

  4. Create an abstract tentacle creature with X-Particles and Octane 21 Comments


    gsg_everyday_20

    As I was creating one of my daily renders I came up with a technique to create an abstract tentacle sea creature using X-Particles in Cinema 4D.

    In this Tutorial you will:

    1. Create an object fully driven from X-Particles

    2. Refine the object using Cinema 4D’s Sculpting tools

    3. Texture the object using Octane Render to create a organic SSS material

    4. Light your scene using HDRI Studio and HDRI Collections and the “Upcoming Octane Link Tag” (Coming out soon, stay tuned!)

    Wait for the Upcoming GSG HDRI Studio Octane Link Tag. I have been playing around with it and it is so much fun. It is coming soon!

    Below is my everyday render that was the catalyst for the tutorial:
