This is an exploration of fluid-based particle systems using Cinema 4d and xparticles. Early goals for look development were to create a cinematic feel. I began focusing on post-processing the still images to get the desired lens effect to inform the look of motion test later. I wanted to use still backplates and comp the life forms into different environments. I found it interesting trying to figure out the best methods that would allow me to have the life form pop from the background while still making me feel a part of the image.
Gaea Terrian Look Development :
These are some of the explorations I do in my spare time. Gaea is a terrain creation software that is node-based. That allows you flexibility when it comes to creating terrain-making integrations.
