Recently I’ve been working on a lot of small projects in Maya during my free time, with this being one of the most challenging one.  It’s a work in progress of my Fluid Dynamics experiments, in which my goal is to learn more about Maya’s fluid & particle simulations in order to create better visual effects. I’m going to try everything from making realistic fire and weather effects but for now I’m just focusing on the tornado.

So far so good, but I’m probably going to make a new blend between my cached animations. I’m not really where I want to be yet, but eventually I’ll get there. Enjoy 🙂
