How to Create Abstract Paint Strokes in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial, I’ll break down how I created this abstract, organic candy paint stroke text inside of Cinema 4D.  I’ll show you how I created the base geometry using Spline Wrap and then I’ll go over how I used the Jiggle Deformer to create some nice organic undulation movement!  The Jiggle Deformer is an awesome way to apply cloth sim like looks to your geometry!  I’ll finish off the tutorial by showing you how I created the material for the text.  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!

    Hey EJ,

    thank you for this tutorial, really cool and interesting, i find you very easy to follow and i think your videos are more fun than Greyscalegorillas. You’re a cool guy. I definitely learnt a lot here and enjoyed what I created.

    I made it a looping gif but i think the file size is too big because it won’t finish uploading.

    But I’ve uploaded my efforts to Youtube!

    Thanks again! You’ve motivated me to get up off my backside over summer and find my love for design again.
