A stylized 3d illustration created using the minimal amount of polygons. In this illustration toxic waste barrels mutate the local fish into giant mutant creatures that wreck havoc upon the nearby residents.
From Concept to Final Render
Below is the concept illustration for this piece that I created a while back. Given the composition and design I thought this would be a great starting point in learning how make low poly art.
How to Create Low Poly Art
Want to create your own low poly art in Cinema 4D? Here are a few tips I learned while creating this illustration:
By adjusting the Phong Angle you can control how Cinema 4D blends the polygons together, taking the angle down to 0 degrees will help create that sharp contrast look you see in low poly art.
Reduce Polygon Deformer
You can use the Reduce Polygon Deformer to take high res models and convert them into low res.
Render Perfect Circles
When using the Polygon Sphere make sure to uncheck the Render Perfect setting to tell Cinema 4D not to smooth out the polygons. Also consider switching the sphere Type from Standard to another option depending on what your desired effect is.
