3d Project Magical Toy Box by bflynn22 3d Project Magical Toy Box by bflynn22
This is a "magical toy box" that i was assigned to create last semester using MAYA. It glows, hence "magical" toy box.

the fun part was the particle effects though. Instead of using particles, I used a transparent plane with a bump map (gradient). the bump maps had a circular ramp where the reflective color went from bright orange to transparent(inner to outer)....making the particles fade out as the moved outward.

next thing to do is animate the bump map so the energy flows!

note, one thing to keep in mind: since i used planes, I had to remove the shadow link between my light source and the planes themselves so that they would not cast a shadow on the ground.

Very clever of you of using a transparent plane for the particles. Good job.

well according to my team, if you open that box, scary monsters and poorly modeled children will attack you. Careful what you wish for!
