:thumbsup: awesome. nicely explained, Even though i have never really worked with TP i completely understood the setup (some people are gifted teachers i guess ;) ).
Though i think using look at constraint between the two points for finding the perpendicular plane is better instead of camera's up vector ?

cheers! :)

ps: nice paintings :D

Hehe :D Yeah, I'm not getting the painting oscars :D For the direction - the idea is to do it with particles, not nodes, hence the setup. Making it run on a surface would be the cool thing. But I guess it can be easily faked :)
