Today I wanted to take a look at a super easy way we can create this fun selfie style reflections in Cinema 4D.
I was inspired to have a go at this after been a long time fan of the incredible work by the artist know as Fanakapan – If you don’t know who he is, his instagram bio reads ‘the pioneer of balloon Graff’ and I think that sums his work up perfectly. Not only is his stuff wildly creative but his ability to capture reflections is just mind blowing – and this is all by hand. Insane.
So I was inspired to see what sort or results we could achieve using cinema 4D!
Before we start I figured we we’re going to need some sort of reflective ball, now unfortunately I don’t have a nice vfx chome ball handy – but what I did have lying about was this badboy, the humble christmas bauble – its not perfect, the surface is a little rough but I thought it might just be able to do the trick!
Next we ran outside and I snapped this guy just using my iPhone – I tried to get as close as possible to maximise the resolution because we are going to use this image for our reflections.
