I am very happy to announce that we are releasing 4 more Image Manipulation packages today. Some by popular demand and some we decided to make on our own, but basically you said jump and we said how high.
small smoke swirls are good, but you know whats better? BIG HEAVY INDUSTRIAL smoke. The kind of smoke you would find in a plant or factory, the kind of smoke that is so thick that it looks like a marshmallow cloud. Such a smoke package would be awesome for industrial plants, ground fog and exhaust systems.
Photographed against a black background, it can be easily composed by using “screen” blending mode.
We have created quite a bit of different textures that you can use for various composites. Did we have to pour litters over litters of fog-magic-fluid into our fog machine? Yes we did. So much fog-liquid went into the fog machine, that we had to call the fire department and let them know that our studio is not on fire. We also had to call the Bureau of Magical Affairs and let them know that we do not plan on making the city disappear.
anyways, back to the textures, we used wind machines, vacuum cleaners, industrial blowers, computer fans and other secret devices to make this smoke package as versatile as possible, and you will find textures suitable for ground fog, industrial vents, exhausts and so on
If you ever tried to hand paint some fantasy elements like energy balls, hovering SciFi lights, ray gun emissions? You know it is not easy, right?
Not easy, but doable. We got our painting caps on and rendered 50 lines images in super high resolution. At 6666 pixels on each side, each texture is big enough to work with as a background or as a special effect.
Did we make a huge mess in the studio again? You betcha! After sourcing the best ink in Germany and conjuring some magic water tanks we were able to create some mystical ink blobs and smokey looking clouds.
Oh, there is a bonus, we also included a nice set of swirls. (we made Stefan drink those after the shoot, so the next package may take a bit to complete. He is resting now)
No good destruction scene is complete without a good dosage of cracks. No, this is not a pun.
We took the task of braking some nice bowls and some brown eggs to make a nice collection of cracks. From small dragon hatches, to monumental dilapidated bridges. From broken office windows to dented glass creatures. Everyone needs a good crack
