3D Modeling: Create a Clay World

Do you remember when Goku went to Kaio's planet to train? And do you remember that tiny house on that little round world? In this course, not only will you be able to train, just like Goku did, by modeling your own planet with Cinema 4D, but you will also learn to make your planet look as if it were made out of clay. Are you in?

About this course

When you were a little kid, not many things were as fun as playing with clay right? Well, guess what? You can have that fun as a grown up too! How? Using Cinema 4D.

On this course I’m going to teach you how to model from scratch a planet that will look like it’s made out of clay. We will pay special attention to the modeling part, but that’s not all. A 3D model isn't that good without its lighting set and its materials. So, at the end of the course, I will teach you some nice tricks to create the exact kind of lights and materials that we need to make it look like actual clay.

What project are we going to delevop?

We will model a 3D clay planet using only built-in tools from Cinema 4D. We will learn how to model, how to set up the lights and how to create awesome materials.

Who is this course for?

This course is for people who know the basics of Cinema 4D, the interface, the menus and how to create shapes.
