After i posted a tutorial a whlie ago over there at orbaz.com about creating ParticleSplines with ParticleFlow and a little MaxScript(currently down unfortunetly) i decided to create an image showing this technique.
I was inspired by the Venus by Milo of cause
I used 3D Studio Max 7.1 for the ParticleSplines and PhotoShop CS2 and AfterEffects 6.1 for the decent postproduction (to comp together color-,specular-, ambient occlusion pass and the background image. Color corrention and little glow/grain here and there)
Productiontime was about 10day on and off excluding rendertime.
This image is my Animago 2006 Submission in the category Home>Still>Art by the way. So wish me luck
Hope you like it!
