Definitely an improvement! I’m still a small guy, so dont take my word as big as some of the awesome guys out there, but yeah, like Fenix said the fire looks a biiit off. You can still see it kinda sputtering awkwardly, it doesn’t really flow like a fire should. The bits that come off just look sort of…circular, there isnt much differentiation between their shapes you know? The color is great though! Really good color choice. As for the scene, I personally like black backgrounds but I know others like grey checkered? I dont really know what the industry standard is right now for backgrounds when showing off work, but others probably do.
Not really sure how to feel about this background, it’s pretty bright and all the bricks kind of distract me from the effect itself. The snow looks great to me, same with the explosion.
Edit: Oop, sorry about that. Did not mean to click that.
