Ring on a small shrine (updated smoke and particles)

Thanks to all the reactions, I decided to make smoke and particles directly in BLENDER 2.91 alpha and render with Luxcore 2.4 and then make a new composition.

New version with 3D smoke and particules with BLENDER
Every particle became a light source, so the render at 4K took about 4 hours 30 mins, and I stopped it at 420 samples. Then it is composed to another version with more greenery and different light setup at 1200 samples.

Thank you! Really appreciated :slightly_smiling_face:

I am posting the raw render that came out from Luxcore 2.4 to show that really few things where postproduced, only some sparkles here and there and the magic color aura effect, that I “hand painted”

looks sweet! the smoke effect is in blender or is a 2d image?

Thank you for your sweet comment.

I digitally hand painted the smoke.

This is the raw render, as some might prefer the version with no post effects.

Plants are part of the render, some are png screens and some are textures.

Gorgeous, sharp and well contrasted, plus the design is lovely!
