FX Wars - KBoom!!
This was made for the FX Wars -KBoom!! challenge over at the CGSociety.
The pirate model is from an ongoing short animation I'm working on with a fellow colleague, I built the ship and everything else for it in about a week. I bit off quite a large hunk of work for this one, but I wanted to see just how much I could get done in just over a month.
I roughly storyboarded the whole sequence, did some quick layout and was sure to only make what was going to be seen in the camera view.
I used 3DS Max, Mental Ray for rendering, FumeFX and Thinking Particles for the FX work, and Fusion for compositing.
