Nuclear Explosion

Just playing around with ShapeKeys and animating textures.I know the lighting needs some more tweeking,but it does have a nice affect to it…
Heres a quick Animation.



Looks nice. You just need to make the mushroom cloud change shape.

looks really good. i’d suggest moving some lamps, and adding a little more detail to the top mushroom. try using modern photos if possible as a reference.

composite nodes!

nice mushroom.

…oh wait, its a nuclear explosion?
The “mushroom” needs to be MUCH brighter, it has to be almost blindingly white.
Also the cloud needs to grow faster.
Still, good work.

Shouldn’t the top ‘donut’ part of the explosion’s texture be moving downwards not up?
