Thunderbird vs. Mongolian Death Worm




Here’s a fun video I made stemming from my interest in cryptozoology! :slight_smile:

This video marks one of the first times I’ve really begun using the “Glare > Streaks” node to try and improve a scene in post, along with “Glare > Fog Glow” (which I’d been using for some time).

The feathers were perhaps the biggest challenge, for which I used the “Normal-Tangent” technique ( to try to keep everything stably oriented (using a “cylinder”-style UV projection from underneath to provide the appropriate tangent data).

I’ve released this with a CC0 license, and included the .BLEND below. (3.8 MB)

Feedback (even highly critical feedback) is appreciated! :slight_smile: Peace and God bless!
