  1. What direction to go now?

    I didn't want to create a new thread, but today I tried modeling something simple, I asked my friend and he gave me a Kraken Rum Bottle. And it's seriously poor, I'm not even sure how I'd of gone about doing the handles. Let's say I was to remodel this, what would you suggest, and do differently? (Ignore the ruined polygons on the label, I tried making the The Kraken Black Spiced portion, since that part of the lable in reference images was shiny) Also, how would you achieve the smaller details, like the breaks in the bottle cap, and the"KRAKEN" text molded into the class Thanks.

  2. What direction to go now?

    Thanks! That's what I was intending on doing. But the thing is, I don't have the resources. Is there any good solid resources out there? (whether it be for C4D or Max I have both on Student Licenses). As of now, it's not a career objective, though I consider it a huge possibility has a fullback option.
  3. What direction to go now?

    Well. I don't want to focus on ships, that was just my fandom, so I choose to model a ship. Tho I would like to be capable of modeling ships. What in your opinion would be a good place to start in terms of modeling. When doing level design in source, I started by making my house. But source mapping is very basic when compared to 3D modeling complex models. Thanks
  4. Phaser and Shield effects!

    Sorry for the really late reply. But simply put, for the shields, it was a sphere around the ship with a noise texture, and a promixal shader with a alpha channel. If you need me to expand on that just say :)
  5. So. I've been wanting to learn, how to 3D model. And after ages of saying I'm going to do it, I finished college and I went out and modeled my first thing; The Enterprise from Star Trek Discovery. But I feel I went about it the wrong way. I've been wanting to learn how to model using the Polygon pen tool, not molding shapes and using sub divisions surfaces, as I reached impasses which stopped me from making certain details. It also got quite messy as you can see in the images below. So what do I now? Is there any good FREE tutorials on 3D modeling in Cinema4D. As, I'm considering it as a potential career path if my current one doesn't go well. Thanks! (also feel free to give criticism, I welcome it)
  6. I finally learned how to make Phaser and Shield effects using Proximal shaders and various light settings. Still learning to model, however it's taking time due to the small amount of time I can dedicate to it. Enterprise D by Alex3D (Nightfeaver)
  7. Materials broken only in render?

    The only odd looking one is this one?
  8. Materials broken only in render?

    That would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Materials broken only in render?

    I have a very limited knowledge in texturing, how do I check the UV's, and when I am checking them, what am I looking for exactly (when comparing the textures)?
  10. Here is the model, in the view port. But when I render it, the texture breaks. Any help is appreciated, i'm no where near learning how to texture. And this is a side project from my modelling and is for a school project. So thanks!
  11. So, I want to achieve effects like this; and . How would i best go about them? Should I do the phasers etc in after effects? if so how. And in cinema, should I have lights move about the scene to light objects appropriately? I've never done stuff like this. So any help is great! Thanks!
  12. Thanks to Chris Kuhn, Alex3D (NightFeaver), 3D Sci-Fi Rendering Group, Cerbera, C4D Cafe and many other people, for helping me, and inspiring me over the last few years to get to this stage. The last two images are pretty poor, and compression has ruined most of these renders, but here is the evolution of my renders: As for my most recent render; It was requested that I make it into a video, I've never done motion before, so excuse me for the poor animation. To see the majority of my renders in a high resolution, please feel free to check out my DeviantArt Page: https://andromeda4482.deviantart.com/ Once again. Thanks! - Andromeda
  13. Plane Approach at Night.

    The scene is quite simple. There is a plane with a noise texture. I've never used that plugin, will it hinder the render time massively? Thanks!
  14. Plane Approach at Night.

    Oh yes! But I would have no clue were to start with making that effect. I don't have any plugins. Would that be possible in vanilla Cinema4D.
  15. This is for my A Level Media Work in College. I've never really done realistic renders before, and would love to hear your tips, tricks or suggestions for making it better. Would be nice to know how I can stop the fuzziness. Also making it more realistic would be great. I am contemplating adding Fireworks as the entire short is set around New Years eve. I will make the text better, this is just an early edit, thanks!
