How to Create Tiny Planet Ecosystems in C4D and Octane

Jacob Torres shows his method for creating tiny planets in Cinema 4D.

I’ve always been fascinated with those cross-sectioned cube-based landscapes and self-contained ecosystems. Check out this tutorial from Digital Artist and Motion Designer Jacob Torres that shows us how you can build a small world or planet effect in Cinema 4D and render it with Octane in the GPU. The tutorial has an overview and then shows how to set up grasses, trees, lighting, and art direction.
