grain texture

BG by Côme. The smoke on the ground around the man’s feet has been done by Benji. And Camille helped me A LOT with the rendering of the smokes because we had no time left:) Also I managed to loose my last animation file (clapclap) so the 2nd thing is just a part of the final movie and we don’t see everything clearly but whatever:)

Edit: No gif for today sorry it was to big so turn the HD button on it’s a bit better

Here’s an animation test from before we began the animation of the film. I had almost no time to figure out the style of the smoke and a way to animate it but yeah it was fun to experiment and I’m very happy with the result !:)

Edit: So you can put 10 images up to 10MB each in one post but it seems like a single gif can’t live here on tumblr if it’s more than 3MB.. So as this stuff is mostly texture work, below 3MB there’s nothing left thank you tumblr I love you so much so much.


Technique studies:

1+4. Alcohol Drops - These cause pigments to repel from where the alcohol is dropped forming ‘fish-eyes’. Spattering can also be used as a technique for cleaner circles or for more varied sizes. I think I will definitely use it for more natural textures, like forest  landscapes or underwater scenes. 

2+3. Salt - Really popular and frequently used, it absorbs pigment and creates a snowflake type texture. I just used small grains for these texture studies, but I am going to experiment with larger flakes to see how they effect the overall color/visuals.
