Here’s my latest scene, everything done in Blender apart from some post processing in After Effects.

sparks seem to many than normal, but, very realistic anyway!

Thanks! This was the reference photo I used for the sparks which actually had more sparks than mine I was surprised there were so many sparks, but maybe you’re right less particles could look nicer.

That’s cool, I love the wear and tear texture on the anvil. I agree though that you have too many sparks.

I like it! I have a blacksmith friend, and I believe he’ll love this image. Sending it to him now. :smiley:

you could make a motion blur to that hammer.
but nice scene anyways :slight_smile:
