Houdini Large Scale Smoke Sim

Finally got round to finishing this project I'v been rendering in my spare time. I started this project about six months ago to learn more about shading, rending and simulation in Houdini. Although the project was finished I'v been rendering it in my spare time as each frame was taking about an hour. I also only got 153 frames rendered as my computer ran out of memory for the sim.

Really enjoyed this small project and learned a lot more about Houdini and Nuke.

Faora Sculpt WIP

Finally got round to doing some personal work and decided to sculpt my own version of Faora from Man Of Steel. I think the eyes need a bit more work, they need to be shorter and sharper and the hair also needs finishing. Also fiber mesh is so much easier to use than Max hair and fur modifier.
