De Fabeltjeskrant was an old Dutch stop frame animation kids tv show. All the characters were made out of felt. I was tasked with animating the revamped show title, taking the old tactile feel of the felt with the new updated feel of the 3D animation, and marrying the two.

I’d never made a felt texture in Cinema 4D before but after doing some research, I’d manage to get the right looking colour and bump texture. I also added curly hairs sporadically over the title to make it look extra hairy and tactile. The result is what you can see above. I was really happy with the result.
