FXWars! BIG Freeze!: Liquid, Frozen City Enviroment

Hi,
I'm pretty new to the vfx scene. I saw this challenge and al these amazing teams, but i thought: well i just trie it on my own and see how far i come So my idea is to make a frozen enviroment but just not a normal one I thought of making a scene where you see a city in snow, in front of you. From the right side you see something like a snow storm coming, that's just a quarter in the city already. Then from the left side you see a stream of lava coming down the hill, this is also about a quarter in the city already. I hope you understand it, i'll make a quik sketch tomorrow for you if you don't. It's gonna be very difficult and maybe i just take another idea.

Here's my first WIP, it's a very quik test. I tried some differrent snow effects, and i just really simple mapped a few cubes. This is just a very quik test off course



C&C very welcome,
Cheers

I have tried to create the shader for the lava, i have two options (or i could edit it further). I'm not sure if it's finished yet cause i'm not sure if the percentage of the fluid and the solid of the lava is right. I think it needs more fluid. But well i let you say Sssoo:

Lava

Shat shader looks pretty good!
Both options are looking great.
I think it depends from the mood of te scene what lava you should use!

A created a test of a stream of lava running down. This is just a plane with a painted mask for the lave. I'm not quite happy with the result but i know what i want to do, only that takes more time (not today ) Tomorrow more updates!



C&C Very welcome again,
Cheers
