Free Cinema 4D 3D Model Train Station Clock

Free model time! This one is by my friend Brian Pilgrim. He modeled it and I textured it up for Octane Render. (If you use other render engines you’ll have to re-texture, but it shouldn’t be too bad). It’s a rad old fashioned train station clock. The brick wall texture isn’t included in the download, it’s part of our Octane Texture Pack 2, if you’re interested in it. Besides that it’s all there and free to use for whatever you want, including commercial work. Enjoy! Huge thanks to Brian, make sure to check him out on his Twitter or Instagram. Thanks buddy!

Anyway, Ryan rigged up the entire thing with a ton of Xpresso controls for speed, size etc. so make sure to dig into the Xpresso to learn about how it’s made. Huge thanks to Ryan!

Free Cinema 4D 3D Model: Traditional Chinese Sky LanternI have a beauty of a free model today which was created by my friend Rodrigo Ortega. He’s an art director/designer based in Shanghai and he modeled a gorgeous traditional Chinese sky or paper lantern. It comes with multiple versions: .c4d with included hair objects, the .c4d file but baked down in case you don’t have the hair module and also a .obj and .fbx. Huge thanks to Rodrigo. Make sure to give him a follow and thank him over at his Instagram: instagram.com/rodortega_

A sky lantern, also known as Kongming lantern or Chinese lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. In ancient China, sky lanterns were strategically used in wars for military communication (transmitting secret messages) or lighting the sky when laying siege on the city at night. Later they were incorporated into festivals like the Chinese Mid-Autumn and Lantern Festivals. Thanks again Rodrigo!
