Do you want to learn 3D modelling quickly & easily by creating trendy low poly artwork? You can do it in this course and learn the basics of Cinema 4D by creating a Low Poly Wolf! This class is perfect for designers, illustrators and anyone else who would like to learn a bit of 3D modelling to add to their designs.

In this course you will learn the basics of how to emulate this trendy art style which has been used in popular games such as Journey and Monument Valley. For games, lowpoly is important for optimisation which is measured with the polycount of your model. The higher the polycount is for your model, the longer it takes for the system to render it. 

Content & Overview

This is a great way for beginners to introduce themselves to 3D programs like Cinema 4D. Starting with a basic overview of the program, the course will help familiarise you with the tools you will need first. 

With the basics complete, the course will take you through how I created the lowpoly wolf step by step. We will break down the model to make understanding the process easier, starting with the body of the wolf and finishing with the paws.

Students completing this course will have the knowledge to create basic shapes and characters in the low poly style in Cinema 4D.

I have included the Cinema 4D file to download at the end of the course for you to use as reference. So you'll be able to work alongside the videos to create your own wolf. Please feel free to share your creations as well!
