Can't figure out how to model this

Hi all,
I found this course at Motion Design School using C4D. I like the animation and characters and wanted to create it in Blender but I can’t figure out how to model the smile inset in the geometry/ Can someone help and/or point me in the right direction of a tutorial?


Could be using “Knife Project” to project the smile on the cylinder.

Just a quick one :slight_smile:

You could model the smile with a curve and use boolean difference operation to cut out the shape from the cylinder.


Knife project the smile on a subivided area, inset a face and move it a bit inwards. Switch to Sculpt mode, apply mask and a proper brush to it to make it rounded.
