I'll kick this off with all the reference I've collected on smoke and dust. Currently, there are 115 pins on this board, with more to come.
I'm curious to see what sorts of wispy reference everyone else has gathered. Please add anything you find to this thread, so we can all partake in the awesomeness :^D
A few gifs from this Pinterest board:
Some juicy cloud reference here!
this contains fire, smoke and smoke explosions, ignore the music, its quite bad
These are all super inspiring and hypnotic to me!
Love this reference! I've found myself returning to this video time and time again, for colour, behaviour or just inspiration!
found these today while looking for liquid nitrogen steam
Smoke plume indoors
Liquid Nitrogen in a canister outside
Pouring liquid nitrogen in a pool, at 1.21 hes able to create a funnel
Just found this wonderful piece of simulation
I like that animation reference, the kind of smoke and air flow soft and distorted, the dissipation process, very comfortable!
