CINEMA 4D: Simpson Torus

Time to Make the Doughnuts: PART 2 By Ko Maruyama
It's time to make the doughnuts.  Sure - you could make a better one - I dare you to!  But if you want to get started, there really is no easier way than to pop open up a 3D application and click on a primitive object that already looks like a doughnut: The Torus Object.  Oh, the torus object - is there anything it *can't* do? Try it out - push it around, and see what happens.  In the second part, we'll make the icing, frosting, whatever you want to call it: the pink stuff...

There isn't a whole lot that I can tell you about the tutorial, except that it should be pretty obvious that the inspiration comes from the Simspons movie.  If you haven't seen the movie yet, you probably have seen an advertisement for it - and on that ad, a doughnut.  There are many things that you can do with it after you've made it  - that's up to you.  After we're done with this part, I'm gonna add sprinkles later.

If you don't have the doughnut already - - you'll need to check back to the part 1 movie.  If you haven't seen it, you can get the list of my tutorials on my website and THE MAXON CHANNEL.

You can get a free demo of the software by checking out the MAXON website.
