Introduction: Black Widow
In the course you'll learn how to create the Black Widow - Model, Sculpt, UV, Texture, Rig and Animate a Spider in Cinema 4D.
After sourcing some great refference imagery, let’s kick this off with some modelling. We’ll be animating our Black Widow so we need to follow best practices and keep our geometry nice and lite. 3 Lessons
Now that the basic form of the spider is complete, we’ll set up UV’s the easy way directly in Cinema 4D before breaking out the native sculpting tools. We’ll get our Michelangelo on and sculpt in some serious details to our Black Widow. 1 Lesson
Time to give our model some texture, we’ll hop into Cinema 4D’s own Bodypaint and paint in some 4K texture maps. 1 Lesson
Rigging can be a pain (until you know how;) Let’s get our spider all rigged up for animation using C-Motion, IK’s and Binding tools in Cinema 4D. 1 Lesson
We’ll finish things off by animating our Black Widow. We’ll create a looping walk cycle complete with secondary motions before animating across a plane and over 3d objects. 1 Lesson
Well done grasshopper! Now that you’ve upped your game and picked up a load of new skills, it’s time to put them to the test. Create your own character! We’ve supplied a few we’ve created ourselves to get you started...
