Vote Wirginia Romanowska

I vote for Wirginia R.
Nice work! The fluid smoke has nice turbulent motion, it looks like smoke even with no texture or shaders.

Also it's the only piece that actually followed the brief of creating a "Cartoon Explosion". While the other pieces are very good and a lot of effort is evident in the end results, I don't feel they fall within the original brief.

Good luck to all though... some very good work in this challenge.

Nice composition and effort to capture cartoony explosion.

Definitely the most polished entry. Simulation is very clean and is presented the best. Great work to everyone!
