DIY Adorable Pinwheel with Q-tips Tutorial

When I was a kid, I used to make pinwheel in the classroom with my classmates. The pinwills made by the students are really colorful! Red, white, green, and purple… At that time, the windmills I made were colored, and I thought my pinwills were the most beautiful, because they were made by my brain.

Now, I also enjoy making little Pinwheels with my kids. Do you believe? Use Q-tips and a small bottle cap to make a small rotating pinwheel, come and try it!

1. First, we draw two circles on the paper. 
2. Draw another small circle in the circle. 
3. Use a crayon to paint your favorite color in the circle. Remember that the small circle in the middle does not need to be painted because it needs to be cut. 
4. Cut out the circle with scissors, and the small circle in the middle. 
5. Take out 6 Q-tips. and cut in the middle. 
6. Apply double-sided tape or glue on the back of the cut circle. 
7. Stick the Q-tips you just cut on the circle neatly one by one. 

8. The other circle is also stuck to the Q-tips. 
9. We put various colors on the cotton tip of the Q-tips with a watercolor pen. 
10. We prepare a straw and cut a section. 
11. Insert the cut section of the straw into the center of the circle as a bearing. 
12. Then we prepare two Q-tips and glue them together. 

13. Put the glued cotton swabs through the bearing. 
14. Glue a Q-tips on the other side as well. 
15. We prepare a bottle cap and put some plasticine inside the bottle cap as a base. 
16. Insert the assembled windmill into the plasticine.
17. In this way, our handmade small windmill is completed.  Enjoy!

How to DIY Cute Caterpillar with Orange Peel

When I was a kid, I really enjoyed listening to caterpillar stories. The most profound memory is that there was a green caterpillar crawling and crawling. He was hungry and wanted to find something to eat. On the first day, he saw a red apple and ate it with a big gulp. The next day, he found two yellow bananas and ate them with a big mouthful. Day three….Day four……

So, today we will use the orange peel to make a cute caterpillar. This project is very good for kids. They will have fun. So Please don’t throw away the orange peel after eating the orange. Lets’s start.

First, we peeled the orange peel, then scooped it out into a circle with a plastic cover, and repeated this step, so we got a lot of small circles,as shown in the picture above.

Then we take a plate, put a leaf on it first, then put the round orange peel next to the leaf, and arrange them in the shape of a caterpillar according to the opposite direction. Then we use a black pen to draw the tentacles, then draw the mouth and feet, and put two black and white jelly beans as eyes.

A cute and beautiful caterpillar is ready, do you like it?

How to Draw the Model of the Jack-o-Lantern by C4D

Halloween is coming! The pumpkin is an iconic symbol of Halloween. Pumpkins are orange, so orange has also become a traditional Halloween color. Carving jack-o-lanterns from pumpkins is also a Halloween tradition that also dates back to Ireland. Legend has it that a man named Jack was so miserly that he couldn’t enter heaven after death, and because he made fun of the devil he couldn’t enter hell, so he could only wander around with a lantern until Judgment Day. Thus, Jack and the jack-o-lantern became symbols of the cursed wandering spirit. In order to scare away these ghosts on Halloween, turnips, beets or potatoes are carved into scary faces to represent Jack with a lantern, which is the origin of the Jack-o’-lantern. When the Irish moved to the United States, they began to carve with pumpkins, which are more abundant than turnips in the American fall. Now, if people hang jack-o-lanterns in the windows on Halloween night, it means that those in Halloween costumes can knock on the door for candy.

Today we are going to share how to use C4D to draw the model of the jack-o-lantern.
1. First, we build a sphere and change the sphere into 12 segments. 
2. Turn the sphere into an editable object and press the shortcut key C. Change to face mode and select the top face. 

3. Use internal extrusion, shortcut key I, to extrude the empty hole above. 
4. Select all the faces (CTRL+A), and then use Extrude (D) to extrude a face. Remember to tick Create cap. 

5. We select an edge every other.
6. Then we use the chamfer function (M, S) to chamfer the corner and turn off the subdivision. 
7. We select another edge that was not selected before. 
8. Repeat step 6. 

9. We add a subdivision surface to the sphere. If you think the pumpkin is not flat enough, you can use T to shrink it inward. 
10. We use two cubes as the eyes of the pumpkin, which can be switched to other views. 
11. We turn the two cubes into editable objects, switch to point mode, select these points, and pull down. 
12. Using the spline brush tool, draw the pumpkin’s mouth. 

13. Extrude the splines and align them with the eyes.
14. Turn the mouth into an editable object and merge it together.
15. Merge the two eyes and mouth together.
16. Then use the Boolean tool to insert the eyes and mouth into the previous pumpkin.  That’s it!

How to Draw Cartoon Pencils by AI

Pencils, as our earliest writing tools, can be erased at any time and are easy to carry. When I first went to school, I always put several spares in the pencil case, in case the exam questions could not be solved, I broke the pencils when I was angry.
Today, what we are going to share is how to draw cartoon pencils by AI. It’s so easy that even beginners can master it easily.
1. First, we use the rectangle tool to draw a rectangle and fill it with the color we like. 
2. Using the Polygon Tool, draw a triangle to match the previous rectangle. 
3. Using the rectangle tool, draw a rectangle and place it under the pen holder. 
4. Then use the rectangle tool to draw the eraser of the pencil. 
5. Select the rectangle tool of the eraser, use the direct selection tool (shortcut key A), select two anchor points, and pull to make them rounded. 
6. Using the rectangle tool, draw a rectangle in the middle of the pen as the pencil lines. 
7. Copy the triangle of the pen tip in place and fill it with different colors. 
8. Select the tip of the pen and use the eraser tool to erase an arc. 
9. Delete unnecessary parts. 
10. Select the part except the tip of the pen. 
11. Add a stroke of a certain color and thickness.  That’s it! Have fun!

Do you know the origin of the pencil’s name? Pencils originated in ancient Rome more than 2,000 years ago. At that time, the shape of pencils was very simple: a lead rod was sandwiched in a metal sleeve, which was named pencil as the name suggests. With the advancement of science and technology, the pencil also began its evolutionary history. In 1564, someone in Barrodale discovered graphite, a black mineral, and graphite can leave traces on paper, which is darker than the traces of lead. People call graphite “black lead”, but it is easy to be hacked. In 1662, the first pencil factory in the world was built in Nuremberg, Germany, the Shidelou Pencil Factory. In 1761, German Farber mixed graphite powder with rosin, sulfur, etc. to make strips, with high toughness and suitable hardness, easy to write and not easy to get dirty hands, which made pencil manufacturing technology take a big step forward. At the end of the 18th century, the pencil industry was initially monopolized by Britain and Germany. Later, France also found graphite mines in its own country. However, due to the small output, the graphite was mixed with clay for firing, and economical pencils were made. core. So that’s why you don’t get lead poisoning when you get stabbed with your own pencil, because pencils don’t contain lead, they’re just graphite and clay. But it’s too bad if you stab someone with a pencil.

How to Draw a Realistic Fan with C4D

Electric fan, referred to as electric fan, is a household appliance that uses a motor to drive the fan blades to rotate to accelerate the circulation of air. It is mainly used for cooling and relieving heat and circulating air. Widely used in homes, classrooms, offices, shops, hospitals and hotels and other places.

Today we use C4D software to draw a realistic fan. First of all, you can take photos of fans from all angles on the Internet or in your own home, so as to make fans easier.
1. We can start from the middle position of the fan, as shown in the figure, first make the axis position of the fan.
2. Then we make the shaft wheel of the fan as shown. 
3. Put a protective cover on the axle wheel. Of course, these are all details, you don’t need to be so meticulous. 
4. We make the fan blades on the protective cover. The fan blades of the fan are curved. 
5. Let’s add a circle around the fan blade as a protective layer for the fan blade. 
6. Make the protective cover of the shell as shown in the figure. 
7. Add a protective cover. 
8. Let’s add a layer of measures to what is shown in the picture. 
9. Then there are outer measures. 
10. Don’t forget the measures section in the middle. 
11. Having done the previous part, let’s add a layer of measures to the latter part. 
12. As before, perfect the following measures. 
13. After the whole upper part is finished, we start to make the pole of the electric fan. 
14. Make the bottom disc of the pole as well.
15. Of course, we can also do some details and make small cushions at the bottom.  16. Then we use subdivision surface to make the whole fan more perfect. 
17. Let’s make a scene, you can put some sundries such as ice cubes in the scene. 
18. Adjust the angle, turn on the lights, and set the renderer. Wait for rendering. 
19. A finished realistic fan rendering is ready.  Enjoy!
