Here's a test render I created yesterday. I was most interested in learning about creating clear plastic/glass materials in C4D. I found a very helpful tutorial on Grayscalegorilla.com which taught me the key to this look is in the transparency/reflectance channels of the clear tube, and of course good lighting and HDR. A personal goal I have is to create a few images like this per week, based on tutorials or not, and include some text that give me a "recipe" to look back on
I finally had some free time yesterday, so I decided to be productive and start learning a new software that I've always wanted to dabble in. Below is a test animation that I created using only my Wacom Tablet, Adobe Animate CC, and my knowledge of animation principals. The animation is made up of about 150 unique hand drawn frames.
