Acrylic Paint Pouring Effect

Hello :slight_smile:

I tried to recreate the look of acrylic paint pouring in Blender.
Rendered in Cycles with just 150 samples.

If someone is interested in recreating it you can find a small tutorial + the project file on my gumroad

Cool work and nice looking effect. I’m wondering how much of the effects is still 2d on the image plane or if it really would look convincing when e.g. moving the camera around the head.

Thank you a lot :heart:

Thank you!
Zooming and animating the focal length works fine imo. You can also replace the Texture with a image sequence (slow motion footage of ink-droplets work really good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_K-57lyK6E). Rotating sadly breaks the effect somewhat when using a plane :confused: Maybe you could use a sphere or a tube to get this working but haven’t tried it so far.

That video looks cool. Don’t know how often I’ve clicked on that repeat button :smiley:
