This is me working in real-time and narrating over what I did in the process of making a old style ping-pong paddle. I use C4D, Photoshop and two plugins named xNormal and "solo button." EDIT: Solo button is discontinued. You can now use "Magic Solo" from Nitroman instead.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to showing more over the next week. Including my facerobot to c4d pipeline and a extensive hair tutorial for humans.
