Fxwars Water Balloon: Vote!
Ok we have a winner for the FXwars challenge:
WE HAVE A TIE!

Here are the winners!
  • Best Overall Entry:
ARTIST: NunoNisa



WIP THREAD:
FxWars! Water Balloon! : NunoNisa
SHORT DESCRIPTION:
Hi Guys finally done!

Took about 115 hours including everything (from scratch to final render including render time).

Tried to make a simulation where it could be seen both the incredible slow motion wobbling the balloons suffer on impact, how they blow on that straight line and the water behavior. So there's the reason my balloon only pop's at the second impact...

Modeled, lit and rendered in XSI. Simulated with syflex, water simulation RealFlow.


Hope you enjoy it!

FXWARS: Fireworks -VOTE!
Ok I added the votes:
Here is the winner!


Best WIP thread & Best Overall Entry:
  • Artist:
    tome
    ANIMATION IMAGE:
  • WIP THREAD:
    FxWars! Fireworks! : tome
  • SHORT DESCRIPTION:
    Here is my entry, I used Maya streak and point particles and After Effects for post. I figured this would be a good chance to get some more mel practice so I put together a script that reads a csv/text file where I specify the timing of when the shells shoot off as well as their burst colors and their height. That's probably what I spent the majority of my time on, think I worked on this for about a month off and on between work and school.

    I plan to add some smoke and the sound effects from Roberto (and any suggestions I get from you guys ) before I call it done. Just don't know if I'll be able to get that stuff in before the deadline. I'll update my wip with any changes I make after the contest. Also thanks to my bro for his non-cg feedback.

BEST VISUAL EFFECTS
  • Jonathan Freisler
STILL:




WIP THREAD:
here...

DESCRIPTION:

My main intention was to do something fairly different and to stand out. My initial feel for the challenge was to make the shot really cinematic and have an almost film quality to the final piece, again going against the dark and stormy atmosphere normally associated with tornados. I chose to do a waterspout with the hope not many other people would consider going down that avenue. I built all the assets for this challenge using 3D studio max, with pflow for particle effects and some simulations. The spires, cranes, ropes, barrels, boats, secondary buildings and most of the debris on the rig was hand animated to complete the final effect. Volumetrics were done with After burn, FumeFx and all rendered in Vray.
