In this tutorial, I’m going to break down my workflow of how to create cool, stylized, cartoon style 2D splats using just standard tools inside of Cinema 4D. First I’ll show you my initial setup and a couple of different ways you can animate the splatter. Next, I’ll show you how I got the splatter effect using a combination of tools like Metaball and the Melt Object. Then I’ll show you how to tweak it to get different types of splats by simply adjusting a few parameters. Finally, I’ll show you how to animate it with only a couple keyfreames to make it look like a realistic splat. If you have any questions, be sure to hit me in the comments below! Have fun and if you make something with this technique, be sure to share it! Enjoy!
