So this was the explosion shot done for a scene in the Tololing Attack video done in May this year. Not too perfect but I did put in a lot of research into it. Also the mountain and the sangars are sculpted, modeled and textured by me.
Done completely in Blender, Photoshop.
If you want to take a look at the actual video - youtube.com/watch?v=zJYAnohkKdw
Some more progress on the textures. Still, a lot of room for little tweaking here and there. Also, I realize that proportions are off a bit but it might be a little too late for those corrections. Anyways, will be posting the complete model with the helmet by tomorrow morning so follow along…. And do watch the video in HD, online videos tend to mess up the details.
