DESCRIPTION:
In this kingdom, every winter a war begun.

I wanted to create certain effects, flames, smoke, floor, the door and wall that is frozen,.... and an explosion, it is my passion. I perhaps overstated the amount of this effects.

I hope you like it, however,I wanted to create a small moment, the first defense of the castle from the attack.


Software used: 3dsmax,fumefx,combustion

Awesome job, Stefan. Just add another 119 minutes and you have yourself an epic! This is probably the first FX Wars entry (ever) where I was truly disappointed there wasn't more.

There are a lot of great entries in this challenge, great stuff but my vote goes to:

Best VFX: Stefan Morrel.

That was just epic and, I agree with Artbot, I was disappointed when it ended. I wanted more.

You would'nt think it but the flags blowing in the wind really added a sence of realizm to the shot that I did'nt think they would.
