Create an underwater scene in 3D

Go on an underwater adventure with Dídac and learn to design a deep sea scene!

About this course

On this course, we're going to practice different ways of modeling in Cinema 4D to create an underwater scene, which we'll then add the final touches to in Adobe Photoshop. Instead of following a basic pattern, we'll model our scene using splines, cloth tags, physics like the hair module, animated textures, animated alphas, etc. 

What project are we going to develop?

Using Cinema 4D, we're going to create a scene made up of swimming jellyfish. This could be the bottom of the sea, maybe even on a different planet, which is why it has a slight sci-fi feel to it. We'll add this after modeling the scene, in Adobe Photoshop. We're looking for something different to the typical realistic 3D style. 

Who is this course for? Requirements

This course is for professionals or students of illustration and 3D, who want to learn some new skills and techniques.
