CINEMA 4D: Simpson Torus

Time to Make the Doughnuts 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 first part, I'll show you how easy it is to make a plain doughnut - cartoon style.

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 some icing and sprinkles later.

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