How to Create Cartoon Mountains in Cinema 4D

May 12, 2016

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!
