About This Class

On this class you will learn to Create Colorful Retro 3D Twisted Lines Using Photoshop and Cinema4D.

We will start with the gradient tool and then export it so we can use it later on C4D.

Then you will learn to create those 3D Twisted lines and apply some colorful material on it.

Also you will do some final post production on photoshop.

During the following of the class you can experiment with different levels as the process is more experimental and it gives you the freedom to explore and get different results.

1. Intro: Hi, everyone. My name is parents on this class. You're going to learn how to create this kind of twisted, colorful three D lines. You can apply these techniques to create posters, will, papers or some unique artworks. You will have the possibility to experiment with some different tools, play around with the settings and create some unique results. You will need cinema for D, with no extra plug ins and photo shopped to create this artworks, so make sure to enroll and see the whole class. 2. Explanation: Hey, welcome back. So on this part, I'm going toe make a short explanation of what we're going to do next. So, as you can see here is in on example off what we're going to do. As you can see, it is a combination off this colorful, twisted treaty lines and this black and white kind of retro looking twisted three D lines on bond. First, we're going to create a great is on for the radiant on father shop so we can apply it on this three d shape on. Then we are going toe move to cinema for D to create the shapes Onda. After that, we're going to render the image and come back and Photoshopped to make some final adjustments. Of course, I'm not going to add this Nike logo because I may have some cooperated issues, but yeah, that is the the process we're going toe take. So see on the next video 3. Gradient: welcome back. So as I said, the first step is to create a greedy Adam Grady Anton father shop. So now we are on photo shop, and I'm creating a new document. Let's name this radiant. Uh, I'm using a HD resolution size click. Create on. Now I'm going toe create. Ah, radiant. So we goto this pain bucket tool and choose Grady Intell. Now you have to create a radiant, as you can see, you have. Ah, this default options on the radiant editor down here. I have some Grady ints that I've created. I'm going to use this one right here that I've already created. If you want toe, create the same radiant I haven't image right here. Let's let's open it Here. Here are the color codes. Eso You can make the same radiant. So let's create a new layer. Go to greedy in tool and, uh, choose this rainbow default the radiant. And now let's change the color step by step. So going the threat, click on color and choose this the first color on and now do the same thing with this other colors. Okay, now that we created the render, we can apply, Uh, to create Orender. You can hold shift to keep a straight line on. And after we make our render, we need toe to save it so we can use it later on. Cinema producer, go to file. Save us, Grady. Um, save it as a J. Paige. Okay, so now that we have, ah, our Grady int, we are going to create some three D shapes on cinema for D. 4. 3D Twisted Lines: Hey, welcome back. Now. We are on cinema four D on the first tool that you need is Theis Pan right here, Onda. What we're going to do is create some some lines. Uh, I think I suppose you are familiar with this, uh, kind of parental is the same thing as the mental and father shop. So let's just create some some random, random, curvy lines. Now, if we goto this perspective, we would change perspective. We can see that we created our lines just in one dimension. So just change this perspective and create some other other curvy lines. Okay, so after we made, like, a total mess right here, we need toe turn this then this this'll lines that we created in tow three d on to do that . First, you goto this and side right here, and, as you can see, created this this shape with its with six sides. And here's the radius. 200 centimeters. And, uh, we're going to make this smaller. Um, maybe 10. Yeah, it's right here is we're gonna see s o. This is the shape that this life this lines are going to take. But now we are going to turn this into three D, And to do that, you goto this sweep tool. First, we need to apply this, uh, this inside under the sweep, we can apply when this down error appears on the screen. Now, let's do the same thing with this plein. Uh, it is important that on slide this in the middle like that on Dhere, we created the our twisted three D lines. Now we're going to apply some material over it, and then we're going to render it. 5. Materials: now to create some materials. We need to go to this great new material. Double click on it. And, uh, let's on check all this. We need to check only the color and luminous and under the color goto texture on. And we're going to apply the great and we created so load image. Unless shoes the radiant we created now go to Aluminums and do the same thing. Now we're going to apply the material on our object, So just place it on on this sweet on Glick. Grander So you can see that we created this this rainbow effect. Now let's place the camera somewhere. So it looks cool. Yeah, right here. Maybe after that, we need to create the the shades, the black and white three D lions eso that zoom out. And we need to copy this this one so we don't have to create again the same thing. So copia based on, uh, now let's go toe the move toe on. Just move. Ah, the next shapes that we created, we can use the rotator will toe rotate them. Now we're going to change the material off this one. As you can see it. Copies the materials to So the color will be the black we need toe clear this taxer this Grady in texture. Let's and check the luminous too Onda. As you can see, we did this black and white combination now, but also we need to add those those white lines, as you can see on this example right here. So again, we need to copy this sweep so added copy and paste. And the next thing thing that we need to apply on this is this, uh, this atom Mary, and let's apply the sweep on this. As you can see, it creates this kind off. Adams. Here you have the cylinder radius, which is this part right here. That still means I can show you is this line. And the spurious is the radius of the of this fear. It is important to make both of them the same size. For example, zero point 50.5. So this way you can see the the sphere, because it is the same radius as the cylinder. Okay, Now, let's ah, greater material for the for this hat on Marie. New material. Let's make something right. Take the dominance to and make it white, and that's applied. Maybe we can, uh, make the radius lower. Yeah, it's better it Hey, now the only thing I can do before render this is toe adjust. Ah, to adjust both off these shapes. Or maybe just speaker pick an angle when it looks better. If you want to move these black apartment, make sure you select both the black and white material and goto, for example, a potato Artemov tool. Yeah, I'm picking this part right here. So after making some adjustments now, we're goingto go to read and render settings and render this image toe to finalize it in follow shop. 6. Render Settings: Okay, now go to render settings. That's changed. The within the heart. Let's pick a big size for thousands and or five thousands. And for thousands Ah, go to save ah format. Let's big PNG. Just in case we don't want this parts. When there is no material black, make sure to check off a channel on. Now let's speak a place where to save this. Now let's position again the camera or make sure it is ah where you wanted it. And now just click Orender. So as we await the render to finish, uh, we will open father shop and make some color adjustments on father shop. So see you in the next video. 7. Photoshop Finalizing: Hey, welcome back. Now we are in for a shop and we're going to open the image that we just surrendered. Uh, let's open it. And, uh, now we can make some adjustments. If you want, you can cope with this and paste it into a poster sized document. I will do it like that. Great. A new document. Let's set the size and let's ah, based the image. I'm going to rotate it. The images big compared toa the document sizes create I created. So even when I just pasted it, it creates some good looking parts right here. The scholars maybe. Let's ah, resize it. You can hold chief to keep the proportions. Okay, Now, toe, make the adjustments. You can play around with all this settings right here on. I'm going to do it. By the way, if you enjoy this tutorial, please leave a good review and make sure toe poster projects dio I always share them on my son Graham Insta story to Onda. Uh, give me your user names. I can't argue non playing around with curves. Uh, Now let's play around with you Separation if you want. If you have Adobe Premiere are after effect. You can do some animation just with the colors by changing the situation. Now let's go toe color balance. Another thing you can do is create a new lier on go to selectable color range on. I'm going to select the highlights and play around with this fuzziness and range. Now click OK, and I'm going to apply a Grady int. So go to Grady and tool hold shift. I'm just trying this and see how it looks. Let's do select. Yeah, it looks cool. Even like that you can play around the paucity or ah, the mode. Yeah, it is this This looks really cool. I think you can play around with all of these and see what looks better. Also you can at the logo I usually at this Nike logos on it looks political. So the one thing I wanted to teach you was the shapes that you can create on Sama Ferdi and on photo shop you can play around on DSI. What? What you like best? So I think that is for this tutorial.
