Pierrick Picaut released a video explaining how the teaser for the animation course was created using Blender.
In the video, Pierrick Picaut breaks down the process of creation of the Alive teaser talking about how the environment and the character were designed and how the FX were created. The artist describes the process behind every element of the animation including speed lines and magic trails. Pierrick shows the screenshots of the setup in Blender so that the viewers can try and replicate the effects themselves.
Pierrick also talks about adding such important details as secondary impacts. The entire process is shown at a normal speed with all nodes demonstrated on the screen so the tutorial is easy to follow and replicate. The artist also explains how you can cheat a little to avoid doing too much work when creating your FX.
