Etch-a-Sketch Animator in Cinema 4D WIP

Last night I decided to brush up on my Cinema 4D skills and remember that  the existence of said "skills" is questionable at best.  I remembered most of the tools, but really need to jump into some extensive tutorials to get a better handle.  There has to be a better way to achieve some of the modeling that I was doing.  After  the modeling, I need to get a better handle on texture.  Everything looks a little too flat for my liking and any of the textures I add seem a bit too harsh.  The one thing I did remember is to get a hold of some lighting rigs.  There are some more full featured ones you can buy (Grey Scale Gorilla: Light Kit Pro), but if you are looking for a perfectly reasonable rig for FREE (I'm cheap), then follow the link below.  It gave the render a very nice diffused look.  In the end, I'll probably run any renders through Magic Bullet to achieve the look I want.  I'm hoping to have more updates soon.

And here's the Etch-A-Sketch Animator 2000 so you know what I'm trying to model.
