  1. 3D Artist 118 My Magazine Tutorial

    Cool man. You deserve the exposure, that is some amazing work.
  2. Cinema 4D tutorials

    Yeah Greyscale Gorilla is problably the best place to start for tutorials, as they are the "biggest" and most prolific in C4D-land. Also check out Motionworks.com for inspiration, articles and good tutorials (they have the best modelling tutorial series for C4D). I guess you have some kind of idea already about why you want to learn 3D... so what is it that interests you most? Modelling? Effects? Characters? Whole scenes? Is it going to be your hobby, or are you looking to become a professional?
  3. Car Modelling Problem

    Second that :) It's not free, but it basically covers everything you wanted to know about modelling in C4D (although the techniques are basically the same in all packages) and takes you from simple beginning to full complex objects, and it's really nicely presented and explained. http://motionworks.net/shop/making-it-look-great-11/ Take a week or two to work through that and you'll feel a lot more confident and less frustrated. Mind you, after that you'll still need a lot of practice to get better :)
  4. Cinema 4D-Specific Keyboard

    Haha, well this kind of thing is cool if you only use one program on your computer I guess :) I wonder what they key action is like. Personally I like mechanical switches. If I'd have to buy a new keyboard now I'd get a nice "gaming" keyboard like a Steelseries, completely programmable, full RGB light, with extra macro buttons :) (I've got an old Steelkeys 6G which doesn't have any special features but it feels great and is built like a tank)
  5. Uniart3D Studio Showreel 2017.

    Agreed with Vector. That music has to go :) For a showreel I think you can just use any commercial music you like, or otherwise surely there is better royalty-free music to be found for a couple of Euro's, even on something like Audio Jungle. Otherwise, good looking projects. You could probably cut it a little bit tighter. Try taking half a second or a second off all your longest shots and see how that goes. And yeah the handwriting shot...it looks fine but doesn't really fit very well with the rest.
  6. Opinion needed for my render THX :D

    Perhaps... Something doesn't look quite right with those bubbles to me though I'd probably have to look at some photo's of actual bubbly water in a bottle to determine what it is :)
  7. Opinion needed for my render THX :D

    It looks allright, but the first thing I would do is change the background to something a bit lighter. The whole image is rather grey and dark. The other thing are the bubbles...or are they droplets? Is it gas in the water or condense on the outside of the bottle? It's not really clear, though I think if it was carbonated water the bubbles would be smaller.
  8. back to the future sneaker

    Wow, great model, but the materials are what really makes the render shine! Very believable, it all looks just right. I would be interested in some insight into some of the materials. The various fabrics... is it done with displacement? Even the laces have the right amount of hairyness :)
  9. A Sci-fi industrial tool

    Good work! The warning label is nice touch ;) Of course you should really post some wireframes too!
  10. Lighting advice for scene

    Nice work, I like it a lot. It tells a little "story" instead of just being a collection of objects. The flames on the torches do look more like large candles but that's really my only gripe. Perhaps if you added some sparks here and there it would look better already.
  11. How to do these effects?

    It's probably a combination of 3D and After Effects (or other compositing software) though. I'm sure something like X Paticles could be used to create various sorts of plasma blasts. Cycles 4D renderer also gives some options now for post glow effects. And then add more glow and fx in After Effects. Of course there are various good particle plugins for After Effects too (Particular and now also Stardust which looks pretty awesome with a nodal workflow inside of AE!) so you could do this kind of FX all inside AE. Video Copilot has some great plugins for working with glows (http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/color_vibrance_plug-in/) and flares (https://www.videocopilot.net/products/opticalflares/) but also definitely check out his tutorials that use only built-in effects.
  12. Nice looking model :) Looking forward to some wireframes too. I should really continue work on my Matilda tank model...
  13. model off of 2D drawing only please tips

    If you are going to ask the artist to adjust the drawing, I would try and ask her if she could redraw the character in a matching front and a side view. It's not really possible to directly translate the current image accurately into a 3D model, since it's just a 2D "sketch". I think it's just making it harder on yourself, since you need to try and imagine the translation of this 2D sketch into 3D instead of having an actual reference you could use.
  14. A Rainy day in Paris

    That looks good. I think it makes sense to have the polygons flow with the shape of the object as much as possible, even if you are not subdividing. btw I can really recommend getting Motionworks' modelling training "Making it look great 11" if you haven't done that before. http://motionworks.net/shop/making-it-look-great-11/ There a lot of good modelling stuff on youtube of course but I have to say that this is the best and most complete course I've seen so far, partly since he's working in C4D natively, and Toby Pitman is really nice to listen to, but also because he really starts with basic concepts and techniques and not just showing how to build a complicated model from start to finish (although there are several video's for different objects included as well). I'm still learning just like you and I found that my understanding and confidence in modelling really improved with this course (and no I'm not affiliated with them ;))
  15. A Rainy day in Paris

    Haha, yeah I guess so. I think we are all on the same page basically anyway and I hope we haven't discouraged the OP. Personally I would say: try something a bit smaller than the whole Eiffel Tower first :) Or concentrate on a couple of key parts of the tower. Shapes like that star with the floral leaves in the middle are very interesting little modelling challenges (well not so much of a challenge for some guys here ;)) And please keep posting your progress LightinaBox!
