Isn’t he the gorilla?

rokey says:

nice video and how to do my model

Szabó Imre Tamás says:

I’m not a poor guy but that pricetag for that lightkitpro is really expensive..
Which I think essential for your tutorials..

Natan Rifkin says:

I’m loving this tutorial but sadly my computer is too slow once I got about 30 minutes in, which is just at the end of the modelling phase.
I’m looking to spend a fair bit on a Mac Pro so I can keep working and learning. Anyone out there who went down the Mac route for 3D and animation?

Malte Paulsen says:

so sick! you really make me enjoy 3D-Art!

Gaming Cat says:

How would you do this without the HDR studio?

ben bard says:


Mikko Hyyti says:

Nice job and great tutorial. This just shows how flexible Cinema 4D is. You can always go back or modify and change things.

HorstEwald says:

Jellyfish don’t have brains.

Ahsen Tariq says:

Where you get that intro music

QuackerJack09 says:

wind speed 5000 => ooouuuuuuuuwwwww!! 😀

Irakli Gharibashvili says:

nice one. will recommend to my modesign/c4d friends

Imotepth says:

one question: Can I do transparent material without reflections somehow? I mean like this yellyfish underwater:
Both c4d and v-ray material I tryed, added reflection automaticly with refraction and I dont see any option to disable it. Maybe only with SSS, but its not exactly what I want.

cole tosh says:

Thank you guys,, keep up the great work

pixelasm says:

“my safe function is when it chrashes” really? I guess this was a joke on the other hand I do not understand why cinema defaults to not have auto save active …
