About this blog

In this blog I'd like to share my free video tutorials with you. Most of my tutorials are about hard surface modeling, SDS modeling, and modeling using splines. I hope you'll enjoy the tutorials!

In subdivision surface excercise No. 05 we will take a look at one way of putting some holes into a sphere. 


In this video I am using a plugin by C4DZone called "Quadcaps". You can buy it for app. 5 Euros here:




For those of you who don't have the plugin I have uploaded a project file with the finished object:

You will only need this project file for the second object I'm showing almost at the end of the tutorial. 


A time lapse version of the tutorial is available on  as well. 


Enjoy! Thanks for watching!








Following the time lapse version I posted in my blog a short while ago, I have now finished a full 70-minute tutorial with narration on SDS modeling that shader ball. 


My version of this model was inspired by a similar shader ball made by Grant Warwick:





You can download a project file (WinZiP) to follow along:

This project file contains two C4D project folders. The folder "Start File" is the one we'll be using first. I've set up a refernce image in the front view for you. The folder "Even Geometry" contains a C4D file with the top part of the half finished shader ball. This file is for those of you who don't have the HB Modeling Bundle (a set of scripts by Holger Bierbach). If you follow the tutorial you'll know when to use this second project file. 


As mentioned above, there also is a time lapse version of this tutorial (without narration/sound), see my other blog entries. 


I hope you'll enjoy the video. Thanks for watching!

These are three tutorials on practicing SDS modeling. I hope you'll enjoy them. I'll start with the links to the latest one:

Full tutorial, app. 35-minutes, with voice-over):

SDS Excercise 01: 







This tutorial is a sequel to the "Circular Jigsaw Puzzle". We'll be learning a few more tricks in this one and make a heart-shaped jigsaw puzzle.


Again, apologies for the multiple links. I split this tutorial into 8 short lessons. 


Enjoy the videos!
















This a tutorial on using the spline tools in Cinema 4D. In this first set of videos we will learn the basics and create a circular jigsaw puzzle. I made these tutorials because I think the C4D spline tools are great for creating Illustrator-style shapes, and they're actually pretty easy to use. No Illustrator files will be used in this tutorial. It's strictly C4D. 


In the second set of tutorials (I'll create a separate blog entry for those) we will build on the knowledge learned in this tutorial and make a more complicated shape (heart-shaped jigsaw puzzle). 


Enjoy the tutorial!


I apologize for the multiple links.I split this tutorial into eleven lessons For a while I thought it's a good idea to do short chapters rather than one long video. I'll probably go back to doing longer videos instead. Anyway, I thought I'd post all the links in this entry rather than just one so you don't have to search for the rest on Vimeo.
