F1 Tyre v1

I've loved F1 since I was a kid and so it seems like an obvious thing to try to realistically model is a bit of car. I've started with a tyre.

Falling Rings

More 3D fun, based on a new ring (for wearing) I just bought. I thought, "What would it be like to chuck a bunch of these down a weird kind of amphitheatre well?"

So I opened up Cinema 4D to have a looksee...

3D BT Tower v3

I've been teaching myself #cinema4D and here is my first proper 3D project, as ever I'm obsessed with the BT Tower and so here you go, not bad for a novice.

This is my 3D BT Tower all in HD (not 4K, get bent) and with some accurately placed London mapping and a bit of foggy night time.

That tower I love, now in glorious #3D made in #Cinema4D

3D BT Tower v2

I done some more work on this - particularly impressed with all the different colour windows despite each level being a clone (you know what I'm saying effector geeks).

I think I've rather over-lit this version though - feels a little flat or cartoon like.

Version 2 of my #3d experiment. Trying to make it more realistic but it's actually gone quite cartoony. #cinema4d

I've been teaching myself 3D, specifically Cinema4D.

For reasons I can't quite ascertain the first project I undertake with any new tool is the BT Tower, possibly just because it looks impressive but actually is just a bunch of circles and lines (but then, isn't life like that really?).

Anyway, here is version 1... it looks like a 3D model as opposed to a real thing, but not a bad first attempt.

I am teaching myself #3d and as ever I'm starting with the bloody #bttower #cinema4d
