Where is my wip thread???? it's not here anymore!
I only used maya for this, composited with nuke with the help of a friend. animation is not good and there's flickering but that was long enough to render like this!

This is my entry for the volcano tower. I used Houdini, Photoshop and Nuke and the whole scene is one big projection on geometry with some simulations for the volcanic smoke.

CHRYSUS - Lost City of Gold
Full CG entry for the fxwars 36 challenge - Seven Towers
For eons the lost city of gold has escaped the rage of modern man - hidden from reality and temptation.
Animation link - vimeo
Work on shot, initial storyboard and notes - W.I.P.
Thanks for the extra two weeks - I could not of done this shot -- after changing my idea totally near the end of December. Also started late, because I did not quite understand what exactly this challenge encompassed at first; not until I saw other entries did I understand the theme and began work on my second idea of the lost city, with a twist ... in creating molten gold -- rather than the traditional gold.

PSAMATHE - Sand Desert
DESCRIPTION: Thanks for extra time I could go so far. I unfortunatelly didn't finish my work. So its not final. But still I made High poly model of mountain and tower and dead women praying in front of tower... Everything had ~4k texture and there is a lot of scattering. And i work in real time all the time in viewport (LP MODELS) and got good quality of renders (thanks to proxy models/irradiance maps in externeal file/ proxy models in scatter) Scatter was made on mid poly models in the scene. And The idea of scene is in the picture. Idea of camera movement (I'm not so good at animating anything hahaha), and picures in background in the end of animation. Still I will work on it and some day - I will share with U guys final shots (stills not animation)
All the best!
