How we Made the Header Graphic (#C4D)

We hash out a new header graphic for the site every few months. So, here is the most current one in full res:

So, how did we make this graphic? It’s actually pretty easy!

The scene is a greeble type, and we made it with inspiration from a tutorial HERE.

3D Church Model: Update 1

Well, I guess this is the intro to my newest project. My room mate Chris and I were at cheap tacos night and talking about what we have always wanted to do- design a church! We were talking about how we would deck it out with the coolest, modern style everything, and it hit us…. We should get some good experience in Cinema 4D with modeling structures, and also do something we have always wanted to do! So, this week we have made a good start on this MASSIVE project: Modeling a semi-realistic 3D Church!

So… I have decided to keep my readers informed on our progress. I’ll be posting a small article¬†every so often on our progress and some screenshots. Also, we would like ideas on what else we should put in our church model. I might be able to include some polls to get some accurate results for decisions. So please leave feedback on what you like and what you don’t!

We also intend to have this project on SermonSpice.com for sale with some good things in it! Maybe a “Welcome to Church” countdown, or a looping background? We are still brainstorming how we could actually use this for the actual ministry. If you have any ideas, let us know! If we use your idea, there will probably be some $$ coming your way!

So anyways, after a whole day of work, We got a few things finished/almost-finished:

I have posted this as an animation loop and the source files on the Subscriber’s site.

It includes this nice graphic, I can send it to you at any resolution that you would like, the full loop video, and the C4D source project file. Oh yeah, and the illustrator file to make the heart!

I decided to quickly come up with a nice Valentines day animation that to sell on SermonSpice.com (only $5). Chris helped me greatly, and this still took about 4 days to make. And now I give it to BlogRyan.net readers. Hope you enjoy this!

I’ll also have a tutorial on how I made this soon, I am still trying to piece together how I am going to do the tutorials in the future. I have to get all my branding materials together before I can start the whole recording/edit/distribute process.

Let me know what you think in the comments!
