Blue Moon Shadows

Another addition to my action painting simulation series.
I like how this one turned out with the crowd of glimmering sparkles on the left contrasting the open space on the right. 

Tech Data:
This is the last frame of a 1600 frame animation Most of the images in this series consist of two line particle systems with very long trails. The particles have a lifetime and trail length of 1600.frames The line particle systems at the time of this writing can only be rendered in the Blender render. No Cycles here, at least not yet. I tried using a domain around the emitter and giving it emission and point density nodes, but it didn't work. Lines aren't the same as halos.

Happy Trails

Wired Pink

Here are two more images I'm adding to my action painting simulation series.

no glare

These two pictures have the same composition. The difference is the second has a simple compositing glare node. Notice that the image without the glare is flatter & darker than the one with the glare which is lighter, pinker & appears more three dimensional.

 yes glare

Made in Blender 2.77

Not Rust

Not Rust

It's Terracotta!

I added a glare node to one of my Rust image series and look what happened.

I also added one to Blue & Grey.
More to come. 

Have fun?

Blue & Grey

   Blue & Grey
and other tones 

My second image inspired by the Action Paintings of Abstract Expressionist, Jackson Pollock. This is the last frame of a 1600 frame animation of  line particles emitting 384 very long trails from the default cube.
These trails are 600 frames longer than my first one,Rust.
I'm taking it further and more to come.
Blender 2.77

I was inspired by the Abstract Expressionist Action Paintings by Jackson Pollock to digitally simulate ink and paint drips. This is the last frame of a 1000 frame animation of line particles emitting 384 long trails from an invisible cube.
Blender 2.77
More to come.
I want to see how far I can go with this.

Do the Best You Can!

Golden Hippogryph 
April 2016

A study in aesthometric particle systems with monochromatic materials and another particle system as a background with glass shader

 Inspired by the Futurist, Marcel Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase".

Blender 2.77a

See my previous post to compare the different backgrounds.

Sleep. Eat.
Blend. Repeat.

A hippogryph (also hippogriff) is a mythical animal with the body of a horse and the wings and head of an eagle, born of the union of a male gryphon and a mare.
