About This Class

In this class, you'll gain the necessary skillsets to understand the very basics of how soft bodies work and interact with each-other using dynamic simulations. 

We will go through everything step by step from the creation of geometry all the way to coloring in photoshop. Everything will be completely from scratch requiring 0 plugins besides those native to Cinema 4D and Photoshop.

You will leave the class knowing exactly how to simulate, light, texture, and color a beautiful abstrac organic piece like the one below.

The best so far!
Thank you, Patrick! I’ve followed a lot of your tutorials and I got so excited the second I saw you have a new one and it doesn’t require any plugins! I’ll share my outcome and am already looking forward to a new tutorial from you.

Hello, I'm Patrick. Many know me as Patrick4d. I've been creating photorealistic abstract renders in Cinema4d and Photoshop for awhile now and was overwhelmed at the support and buzz surrounding my Instagram. My work has been featured by Photoshop, The Motion Designers Community, TheGraphicsPr0ject and more.

So as a thank you, I've decided to share some of my knowledge. I will be releasing a new class every month so hit the follow button and jump aboard!
