How to Create Colorful Feathers in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create colorful feathers inside of Cinema 4D.  This is the first tutorial I’ve done inside of Cinema 4D R17 & as an added bonus I’ll briefly go over the new spline Pen Tool and how I used it to draw our feather ‘rachis’ or feather stem.  I’ll then be breaking down all the options inside of the Feathers Object and how to create a believable, organic feather.  Then, I’ll show you how to apply colorful materials along your feather and finish up by showing you how apply lights and shadows to your feathers to give it some nice shading and depth.  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!
