Houdinified Acrylic Paintings
michlvfx posted a topic in Finished WorkHey peoples! I recently started a personal project with the main purpose to explore setups that I either couldn't do during real production, curiosity or pure fun. As a base and also source of inspiration I'm taking real acrylic artworks of a good friend of mine. The photographs of the real artworks are prepped in Photoshop to be able to extract certain textures which I then use in Houdini to create my setups with. The concrete room was built out of a couple of individual decals and assets from Quixel. The whole thing is then being rendered with Redshift, comped with Natron and finalized in Davinci Resolve. From time to time it's seriously fun to play around with setups without having somebody behind me telling me what to do creatively like in a professional environment. No pressure, just fun Here's the first couple of clips I created in this series. Hopefully it's as fun to watch for you as it was creating it for me! You can also check it out on Instagram, Behance or Vimeo. Feedback, questions or whatever appreciated! Volume 1: Volume 2: Volume 3: Cheers!
Hi there good folks, So I've been asked to make that famous effect of various colored paints layered upon each other, dripping to the ground. The dripping? No biggie. Getting the colors to NOT mix together? Urgh. Or rather, as the flip sim goes, particles spread under / over the other layers, resulting at the end of ends in a spotted mesh with no real foreseable tricks to get all those to look like sharp separations. Here is a good reference : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6TnO_Rr3G4 And another one would be : https://vimeo.com/225438054 How my work looks so far, you can really notice the spots : Aaaand joining a scene. So how could I proceed to prevent the colours from mixing together too much? I've thought of getting a particle force to repel/attract based on color, but it will just make weird things happen. I've thought of getting a texture in there, but I do'nt see how I could make it look right or apply it correctly to the mesh. I've thought of manipulating various fields, adding some kind of divergence, etc, but really I'm not sure what to do. Maybe it's just a post sim trick, too... Paint_drips.hip
