  • Amazing entries. I’d really like to see a tutorial of the winners piece.

    • Thank you! Wow it’s very hard to make a lesson of this piece at this moment, I did it chaotically enough and it 3dmax instead of Cinema4D. But I can throw to you a project file for 3d Max if you want

  • the winner surely earned it.
    hey Nick!
    i’m a c4d beginner from Israel, and you are an important part of getting me started (and going). thanks for all your great works, tutorials and can-do attitude. here’s something inspired by your cherry 7yp tutorial. your critique is welcomed.

  • Hey Nick, i don’t know if you know this already but the winner says he had been working on the project for 4 days but unfortunately lost his file after all that hard work he put in, as a result had to make the project again within 5 hours to meet the submission deadline! This just proves that not only is this guy a genius but he deserved this spot! It incredible work!

    • love you Modisana) but I’ve already met such situations when Ive lost not 5 seconds projects, but 30 or more) so it wasnt so scary)
