Cinema 4D Tutorial: Model a Milk Gallon in Cinema 4D

In this Cinema 4D tutorial we will model a gallon container.  The challenge of this model is the creating the one piece handle of the container.  A SweepNurbs over a spline is not an option because a gallon container is one whole piece.

Starting with a cube with some subdivision we will push, pull and scale polygons, edges, and points to form the shape of the container.   We will use the Bridge tool to create the handle, deformers to shape the container, and the Cinema 4D Sculpting tools to model the bottom of the gallon container.

Use the Sculpting Tools into Cinema 4D to create a stamp.
