Animation Vs Illustration: Layer Tennis Match

August 20, 2010 - By 

UPDATE: I just finished the match and I had a blast! You can check out all the volleys here.

I will be battling awesome designer and illustrator, Aaron Scamihorn to start the new season of Layer Tennis. I played a match of Layer Tennis last year when I was at Digital Kitchen and had a blast. Hope to see you all there today. Talk trash or give my hi fives on twitter by adding the #lyt hash tag to your tweets.

    Seriously Nick, quit your job and become a singer, that was brilliant!

  • Hey Nick, awesome job on the last layer, would be great to have some tut’ on your process, nice job !

  • Nick, here you look like Gordon Freeman πŸ™‚

    maybe someone can answer…

    is it possible to get a soundfile into mograph dynamics? can c4d play a sound at collision events?

    and: can a soundfile be modified by c4d while related to objects that have different distances? example: an explosion in the front is louder than an explosion in the back …

    are there any tutorials? would be great!

  • When is the results?

    • I guess you will have to use a spline mask on the sphere which is above an inside I dont know πŸ™‚ Just guessing.
      Good one though.

    • Looks like just wrapped up spheres for the first one. And some deformed spheres for the abstract looking stuff. I have an “abstract” tutorial from last year that might be helpful.
