About this course::

Cartoony, stylized characters are prevalent in the world of tv and film CG, as well as video games. These types of characters are a lot of fun to build, but they do present their own set of challenges.

In this training, we'll talk about creating work that matches our reference images. We'll use a variety of polygon methods as well as some spline techniques to build up our alien officer from the ground up. In addition, we'll talk a little about the unique way that geometry can be built in CINEMA 4D, using generators and hierarchy.
