Hi there! In my few days off I concentrated on creating the cream that drips from the head to make the body more interesting, it was difficult to achieve the "creamy" effect. In the remaining days I will focus on colors.

Hi everyone! In recent days I have focused on displacement, I believe it is one of the characteristics that must be taken care of as much as possible to obtain the result I want. I made a lot of use of the "Path tool" to write Chinese ideograms and I found a convenient system for inserting characters via alpha while always using the same tool. I created this last technique after watching the second lesson on the Meet Mat when I saw how the eyes were made in the video. Below are some images of where I'm at now, next step? Shading.

A few months ago, I began taking steps toward my dream of entering the world of VFX. This is my first contest, and I'm very excited about the idea. After many days of thinking about what I could bring that would be interesting and at the same time stimulating from a technical point of view, I present to you Moon Cake Mat.

I chose this concept primarily to enhance the creation of organic materials, which are characterized by various variations in different scales. The second reason is to develop the creamy filling, incorporating a translucent material. Last but not least, the displacement of the front design is expected to pose the most challenging aspect.
