Hello, My name is Michael Balchaitis and welcome to my course Create a Creature Head in Cinema 4D. I will start this course creating the concept art in Sketchbook Pro but you can use photoshop or another drawing program to easily follow along. From there I will go into the modeling of the base mesh. I will model each of the facial parts of the creature. From there I will go through the sculpting process in Cinema 4D. Moving form subdivision 1 thru 6. Then I will go into the finishing section where I make the teeth, explain Multi pass rendering and color and compositing in Photoshop. I am very excited to show you my process and don't hesitate to ask questions.
