About This Class

From sketching your idea to final realistic 3d illustration.


In this project based course, I`ll show you how to create 3d typography in Cinema 4d, how to apply simple materials and render different passes which you can use for compositing. You don`t need to be an expert in CInema 4d, you might even open it for the first time. It is very intuitive and easy to follow program and I`ll explain every step on the way.

Next, I`ll walk you through the process of adding details and elements to your typography in Photoshop. We`ll learn how to create melted liquids, paint shadows and lights and use brushes to add more detailed textures. For this it`s preferable that you have basic knowledge of Photoshop, such as understanding of the layer masks, clipping masks, adjustments layers and blending modes  Since I`ll concentrate more on advanced technics and tricks that will help to get all elements together and create believable composite.

At the end of this course you`ll have one more work to put to your portfolio and hopefully a ton of ideas for your next projects.
