Low Poly Art for Illustrations & Video Game projects
In this course you will learn the basics of how to emulate this trendy art style which has been used in popular games such as Journey and Monument Valley. For games, lowpoly is important for optimisation which is measured with the polycount of your model. The higher the polycount is for your model, the longer it takes for the system to render it. Content & Overview This is a great way for beginners to introduce themselves to 3D programs like Cinema 4D. Starting with a basic overview of the program, the course will help familiarise you with the tools you will need first. With the basics complete, the course will take you through how I created the lowpoly tree step by step. We will break down the model to make understanding the process easier, starting with the tree trunk and how to create the leaves.
Students completing this course will have the knowledge to create basic shapes and characters in the lowpoly style in Cinema 4D.
I have included the Cinema 4D file to download at the end of the course for you to use as reference. So you'll be able to work alongside the videos to create your tree. Please feel free to share your creations as well!
