I should post more of my Cinema4D work. I spend a lot of time experimenting with that software, and watching online tutorials about it.
So here's my Whirly Gig Glider
And some other views of it because a single view didn't do it justice.
With a few special motion effects as well
And further detail
Most recently I took one of my early paintings from a Central Coast Art Society workshop in 2011 with Fran Melrose called 'Tugboat'
And worked on transforming it from 2D to 3D with Cinema4D.
Here's one of the renders:
And now for the S.O.S.
I've been using the student version of Maxon Cinema 4D, and that licence runs out soon after Easter. To get a full licence costs around $4,000 which would be easy if I had paid employment, but that hasn't happened yet. Without the licence I won't be able to continue with this 3D illustration, and I won't be able to access and use the last 3-4 years of work. The closer it gets the more worried I am.
So should you have some small 3D projects that need doing and for which you are happy to pay, please contact me.
These were all done with Cinema4D software during the last two months.
The first one is a counting robot:
Followed by what a foundry in space might look like:
And back to robots, this time with a cute gumball-like head:
And finally, a Giant's Causeway:
You may have noticed that I've streamlined the website a bit.
Hopefully it will make website navigation easier for you.
The theme for week 17 of the 52 Week Illustration Challenge #illo52weeks was Long Haired Animal. It took a while before I came up with an idea, and I went with something from the imagination based on the prehistoric.
I mixed things up a little and did the watercolour first and the ink second.
Then I decided to find out what would happen if I tried to make this creature 3D.
With the help of Cinema4D software, this is how the skin-only version turned out:
And then I added in some hair, some lighting and shadow, and shifted the angle of view:
I'd like to turn more of my 2D drawings into 3D, but I often lack the time required to do it to the point where I'd be satisfied with the outcome.
