Project Description

Project Title

Create an Abstract Wolf

Assignment

Create a low poly wolf in Cinema 4D and then create a basic lighting scene so that you can render an image for your illustrations.

Through this assignment you will learn:

  • Basic 3D modeling techniques
  • Importing reference images
  • How to add colour and gradients to a model
  • How to add lighting to the scene
  • Basic rendering techniques

Deliverable

Upload your finished wolf character design! You can also provide some bonus screenshots of your process and wolf sketches with any tips that you may have discovered during the creation of your project. Feel free to try out different animals as well!

Resources

I have included the Cinema 4D file here for you to use as reference. Please post your own creations as well!
