55 Great Cinema 4D Tutorials

This is my round up from Cinema 4D Tutorials on the web . These tutorials are great source of learning Cinema 4D even-though some of them are not really in detail, but still give you the idea of how a cool project could be done in Cinema 4D. Also by watching different type of tutorials by different authors you will learn different techniques and you can come up with your own technique which could be a combination of other techniques after you learn basics. Also some of these tutorials are in older version of cinema 4D but they are definitely worth to watch and basics are always same. Hope you enjoy this round up, it took me a little bit longer than what I planned!

Very Interesting Guitars by Ben Simon

Sometimes I like to be Old School and go to a library to check out magazines and books randomly. Last week in my magazine research I stumbled upon a very interesting photo of a guitar designed and built by Ben Simon. So I E-mailed him and asked for more info and permission to share his works in 4Dfrog.com. So this is what he wrote me back. Thank you Ben Simon and good luck with your creative and interesting Guitars.

“I learned woodworking in a furniture shop in North Carolina. I started building guitars in ’06 and in ’07 my band, “Get the People” (myspace.com/getthepeople) went to Europe twice with guitars and basses that I built. I now live in Brooklyn and am a member of 3rd Ward (3rdward.com), where I have full access to a wood shop. I have recently got my first commission – an all old growth heart pine electric guitar with built in casio keyboard and sound effects machine!

The first guitar came from experimenting with all different kinds of wood. I was making a lot of cutting boards at that time, some that were kind of out there… An electric guitar body is basically a cutting board. Nothing is missing from those you can buy. My stuff is just generally angular and weird and above all they are so fun to make! My great teacher, David Tronzo told me that the natives – the tribesmen built their instruments around themselves, what sounds that particular individual was drawn to make… He told me this a long time ago, and I guess that every musician does this without thinking about it. I’m kinda like a special needs kid in this way.

Standard woodworking tools is what I use. The router is important.

I was trained in general woodworking by these great men – burchcompanywoodstudio.com. Of course I look online, but the main thing I did was take apart an electric guitar and copy the individual parts. “

Cinema 4D Product Design Gallery

Here is a photo gallery of Cinema 4D and Product Design.  There is no doubt that Cinema 4D is a very powerful software, but still I prefer Solid Works for product design. If you want to create concepts, cinema 4D is great, very flexible and you can almost do everything with it, but if you want to design a product for production, Solid Works is a better choice, but defiantly is not as flexible as Cinema 4D. Anyway, these are from Maxon Gallery just to give you an idea of what could be done in C4D.

Crossroads of Humanity by Doze Green in Las Vegas!

This is a beautiful work from Doze Green (American, b.1964) in Aria Tram Station City Center, Las Vegas, NV.
15 Feet x 26 Feet inches.
Photographed by myself yesterday.

Doze Green Speaks in a unique creative voice from the collective consciousness-applying a symbolist approach to metaphysical concepts. Often compared to Basquiat, his urban background and involvement in the early hip-hop graffiti movement of NYC in the late 70’s, early 80’s, led him to transition from creating art in the streets and subways into the gallery setting. Green’s signature aesthetic combines stylized letterform and figurative abstraction.

Using an art of mediums such as link, gouache, and metallic pigments with an evolved, organic cubist quality to his high-contrast fluid line work. The artist’s genealogy inspires many of the themes explored therein, influenced by ancient civilizations and indigenous cultures, including his own Afro-Caribbean roots. The totem-lke human and animal figures are conceptually based on various polytheistic deities. There divinities represent sentinels guardians of universal truths, immortal warriors warning mankind of the dangers contemporary society has manifested, looming on the horizon and threatening to destroy us.

Vintage Toy Robot Series-Great Inspiration for Toy Designers

I stumbled upon these robots yesterday online. I like vintage toys. We designers always need inspiration to stay update and sometimes even very old stuff could be a great inspiration tool. Sometimes even with some minor modification you can create completely new looking product. think about how you can give them a new life.

Also since there are different views of each robot, it is great for those who are practicing 3D modeling. Robots are always good subject for 3D modeling and usually the outcome is interesting. If this inspired you and you’ve created something nice based on these robots, do not forget to share it with us. Just leave a comment with your link, and special thanks to Seeman, who took these pictures and morguefile.com
