Project Description

What do you need for the course?

In the course I've used Cinema 4D without any additional plugin!
(FYI: Actually with this method you can model similar toy car in other 3D software too.)

Structure of the course

  • Using a reference picture to start modelling. / This is my modified picture for this course / 
  • Create the main silhouette of the car using simple 2d polygons.
  • Jump from 2D look to 3Dmodel. 
  • Modeling the lamps.
  • Create the radiator grille and the doors.
  • Adding bumpers and wheels to the car.
  • The windows, mirrors and the springs.
  • Detailing the lamps./ Parts of the lamps /
  • Creating the interior, the seats and the dashboard.
  • Steering wheel and gear lever.
  • The roof and the Mitsubishi logo.
  • Quick rendering with some basic materials.
  • Bonus lecture, / Create the roof rack and use the bonus baggages /

In this course you will get some baggages for the complete journey!
So in the end of this course you will get the knowledge to create your
favorite car as tiny toy car!
