1. Creating Thick Stylized Fur On A Model 5 Comments


    FinalGorillaFace

    In this AskGSG, Geoff Greenwood asked about these gorgeous illustrations of various animals. At first I thought they must have been drawn in Illustrator but then found that they were in 3D. Not to pass up a challenge, we dive right into creating a fast and dirty 3d model of a gorilla face and begin to explore ways for drawing splines to give us control of the flow of the fur.

  2. NAB 2015 Cinema 4D Presentations Batch 3 5 Comments


    In these NAB 2015 presentations, three [scientific and medical animation] artists give us a peek into how they build stunning recreations of worlds invisible to the naked eye.

    Joel Dubin provides a step-by-step tutorial demonstrating how to visualize a B-Lymphocyte using Cinema 4D and X-Particles.

    Heidi Sinsel and Elizabeth McDonald from Nucleus Medical Media demonstrate how they use animation software Cinema 4D to visualize cellular processes.

  3. How to Create 2D Cartoon Cloud Poofs in Cinema 4D 2 Comments


    In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create fun, cartoon style 2D cloud puffs of smoke using Cinema 4D.  We’ll start out by going over how to set up your scene to get the flat 2D shading using the Cel Shader as well as how to set up your camera & lighting.  Then I’ll show you how to create the puff of smoke and how to animate it ‘poofing’ on and move on to cover how I animated the dissipation/animate off.  If you have any questions, be sure to hit me in the comments below!   Enjoy!

    Learn how to apply this line art style look to your 3D objects using Sketch and Toon in this previous tutorial.

  4. NAB 2015 Cinema 4D Presentations Batch 2 3 Comments


    In this double-shot of Cinema 4D scripting presentations Colin Sebestyen and Mike Senften show how they use the Cinema 4D Python SDK to create beautiful generative art.

    In the first talk, Sebestyen uses an L System inspired by Daniel Shiffman’s The Nature of Code in order to create complex branching structures. He also discusses how he creates intricate MoGraph animations using the Python Effector.

    Then, Mike “The Monkey” shares his mChains system which allows for the dynamic folding and unfolding of organic shapes. He closes by showing how he used Python and a CSV file to create a data visualization of global airport locations.
