Cinema 4D – Modeling Hair
The more time I spend in Cinema 4D, the more and more I love it. It can do some truly amazing things that I’ve always wanted to do in After Effects. I’m really excited to be able to pull the best of the two programs together in the near future. So here’s what I learned in the last few days: hair. That’s right, how to model hair. Turns out the beauty of hair is much more in the lighting of the piece more than the actual fibers themselves. Took a while to get the lighting and the materials how I wanted them, but the result was fantastic.
I didn’t want to learn how to do hair well in Cinema 4D without having a way to apply it to what I do on a day to day basis. So as you can see above, I worked on how to apply hair to text. Since the majority of my work deals with text based graphics, this will be a good trick to have up my sleeve. For all I know, Pixar maybe calling me up to work on the next Monsters Inc movie… haha.
