About "Barrel Riders:"
With the recent launch of Rock Essentials from Blender Guru, I thought that was the right time for a bigger project to showcase the product the way it deserves. With the whole creative control on my hands, I had the chance to work my own way on a subject that's of particular interest for me (and, possibly the only subject I ever do heheh). Heavily inspired by the Tolkien world and WETA work (as anything else I do), that's the kind of stuff I will be always happy to work with. All rocks found there came from the pack, so the bulk work of what could be a really long scene to create could be achieved in roughly two weeks, with most of the time being devoted to composition and the water setup.All the water and mist/foam are coming from the render, no fancy post-production here. The water splashes, mist, foam and waves are all alpha masked planes and shapes, with splash/foam samples taken from pictures or hand-painted.
