1.1 Introduction

Welcome to “Creating Low Poly Backgrounds”, where you will learn the basics of 3D modelling whilst creating a trendy low poly graphic for your designs. In this video you will be given a brief introduction and summary to show you what you should expect in the coming lessons.

1.1 Introduction

Hey guys, my name's Jonathan Lam. I'm an artist at Future Games of London, a Ubisoft studio. In this class, we're going to learn the step by step process of how to create an abstract low poly background Using Cinema 4D and Photoshop. Starting with a basic 3D shape, we'll take you through all the tools and skills necessary for the project. We'll then take the rendered image into Adobe Photoshop where we can add some final touches to make your background illustration really stand out. Some of the major topics that we'll be discussing in this class will include basic 3D modelling techniques, how to add color and gradients to a model, how to add lighting to the scene, and some basic tips and tricks in Adobe Photoshop. By the end of the training, you'll have learned how to create an abstract low poly background that you can use in your own illustrations or video game projects. This class is perfect for designers, illustrators and anyone else who would like to learn a little bit of 3D modelling to add to their design. I'm excited to work with Tuts+ to share these valuable tricks and techniques with you guys. So sign in and sign up and let's get started.
