You will start knowing the trajectory and the influences of Zigor Samaniego in terms of Design and 3D Illustration.

Next, Zigor will explain all the basic Cinema 4D tools and where to download a multitude of free or paid objects.

Once you know the basic tools, you will practice with them creating a totem from the sketch with simple geometric shapes with which you will learn to model, simulate materials and textures and edit it with Photoshop. When you have internalized all these actions, you will be ready to design a simplified version of one of the iconic 3D Zigor dolls. Your last task will be to create a still life as an advertising image applying all the knowledge and techniques learned.

To simplify the rendering process, one of the most frightening for beginners, Zigor will create a fully configured photographic scene in which you will only have to add your object.

When designing the final still life, you will learn how to perform the 3D scanning technique by digitizing old photographs.

At the end of the course, you will have created a final image that mixes the modern with the old-fashioned chic.

What is this course's project?

You will create an advertising image from a still life full of color thanks to the technique of home-made 3D scanning and the use of a low-cost photographic studio.
