I would love to recreate this black an white graphic. I guess the best way is to model it in Cinema 4D, export it to photoshop and put the dots on a smart object? How would you guys do it?

Thanks a lot

I have tried it already with Envelope Disort Mesh in illustrator. This is how it looks. The dots are changing the shape a lot and I can't control that. Illustrator 3D doesn't work as well.

  • if you're already on Cinema 4D why not add the dots there? – Luciano May 2 '19 at 10:33
  • Thank's first of all for your help. So I tried to use Envelope Distort but the dot's are changing the shape. In the original example the dot's are only changing in size. I am a bit closer to the original now but it still looks different. – lokumbu May 2 '19 at 11:21
  • the image in your question, the dots change shape as well. If you're getting too much deformation you need to choose more carefully where to place the folds or change the spacing between the dots. – Luciano May 2 '19 at 11:25
  • I tried it out a couple of times now also very carefully. The result is not like the example :( – lokumbu May 2 '19 at 11:46
