Space Shuttle Launch

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with smoke simulations. I’ve learned a lot and have had loads of fun in the process (minus the long waits). So, this is my first official render with a smoke simulation. As a young kid, I always wanted to be the first man on Mars. I don’t have that dream any more, but space exploration is still special to me.


There’s always room for improvement. I wasn’t happy with the density and color of the smoke so I turned up the light path passes for volume to 4 and gave the smoke a more creamish color. I also found a cool quote which I added to the second picture.
