Cerbera's Rockin' GIF Tips

Recommended Posts

  • My Gif Tips are like buses. nothing for ages, then 2 rock up at once.

     

    Today, we're modelling Corinthian Columns in this 2 part extravaganza, and we're doing it properly.

     

    First we'll do the main columns with lovely SDS poly modelling...

    this is fantastic.  I'll have to see how/which tools can replicate C4D's to get this done.

  • Thanks for the comments guys...

     

    Now who wants to know how to make this Ionian Capital ?

    here is what I have so far, close up of the column grooves and columns Houdini nodes.  some things translated like the dissolve, others took some figuring and help from Houdini users.  as I said before, you can model in Houdini but what you can do with a few clicks in C4D, takes more effort in Houdini.

    Funnily enough, the totally parametric nature of Houdini would actually help me make these tips :) 

    Got a new one for you, as requested !

  • Still on the columns theme, this time we're going to start making an Ionian Capital. Why not a Corinthian Capital to match the columns ? Simply because that won't fit into a couple of GIF tips. The Doric Capital on the other hand is too simple, so Ionian is our friend because it's mid-level and looks great, even atop our previous Corinthian columns. And we can do it in 2. And there is historical precedent for this sort of thing - columns that combine multi-styles like this are called composites.

     

    So here's Part 1 of that.

    I am aware of the odd grammatical error and typos :) Sorry about that - ScreentoGIF won't let me go back !

    And I can't distribute the reference, but you can find it where I did.

    WOW, that is great.  it may take some time and figuring out how to do some of this in Houdini.

    some of the things done in parametric modeling is a quick way to do it and you can change things on the fly especially if you make a digital asset out of it.
