Jannis Labelle demonstrates modelling and animating a bird in flight

In this tutorial, Jannis Labelle demonstrates modelling and animating a bird in flight. This is a follow up of his head tutorial so he will not go into a great detail of describing techniques in minute detail, instead he will try to introduce you to some alternatives in modeling, texturing and animation. It is a tutorial for intermediate level users, you would need to know your way around the view ports, tools, the Attribute Manager and be comfortable with using Photoshop. Still, even as a beginner you will find a lot of information here, so with a bit of effort you should get going.The task will be to model a bird, texture it and animate it, using some shortcuts to demonstrate that there many ways to skin a cat, or a bird for that matter.

Jannis Labelle reviews Dogwaffle

Jannis Labelle reviews Dogwaffle

Jannis Labelle takes a look at a new paint program called Dogwaffle. Jannis was quite surprised that Dogwaffle would have such power for only $45. Forget about comparing it with other more established programs, if you want to have fun painting, you'll find it with Dogwaffle

Texturing A Head in Cinema 4D

Texturing A Head in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial, Jannis Labelle demonstrates texturing a head in Cinema 4D and Bodypaint. Jannis says this is the tutorial that he wished he had when he first learned about texturing a mesh. He's written this tutorial so that others won't have to go through the headaches that he went through. This is not a tutorial for beginners.

Modeling a Head in C4D

Modeling a Head in C4D

In this tutorial, Jannis Labelle demonstrates modeling a head using the Edge-Extrude plugin. This is a tutorial for intermediate or advanced Modelers with Cinema 4D who already have an understanding of the modeling capabilities of the software. Although enthusiastic beginners can follow also with a little bit of perseverance. Jannis has tried to include as many screen shots as possible and tries to make the instructions clear and let the pictures talk for themselves. Of course this techniques can be easely followed with any program that can extrude edges, like Maya for instance.
