    Luos's "One Particle A Day/356 days" showcase

    Hey All!

    It has been a while since I did a showcase and since I am getting more and more excited working with particles and effects I thought it would be interesting to start a small project.

    I present to you:

    Luos's "One Particle A Day/356 days" showcase

    Starting today (or yesterday-ish actually) I will post one particle effect every day and will try to keep this up for an entire year.
    I will try to keep it interesting, and hopefully also try something out of my comfort zone on a regular basis.
    Obviously there will be days where I don't have the time, (work/vacation/real life stuff) but that just cannot be avoided.

    Some points:

    1. I will post a new effect every day. (with a few exceptions of course)
    2. I will also record the whole process of the creation of this effect, this will be sped up to stay within 30 minutes.
    3. Occasionally I will goof off in the video's, either because I am trying new stuff, or because I have no clue how to proceed.
    4. Sometimes I wont be doing the fastest route. (goofing off/inexperience/I'm weird)
    5. I will post two videos, one just showing off the particle effect, the other will be the entire process sped up.
    6. You can suggest effects, but this wont mean I will be making it, or that you have any ownership over it.

    disclaimer btw,

    brain was still in a very tired 5-am-ish powers of two mode.. thought to myself.. hmm 356 days right?? (256)
    and meh, ill stick with it

    Month 1 is now submitted to the marketplace!

    I recently created a patreon so I can spend more time working on particles and tutorials. (as well as tutorials and helping out more on answerhub/forums/facebook/etc)
    I would really appreciate it if you'd care and support me

    Ok, without any further ado:

                This is amazing. I don't know if you are doing requests but if you could do a nuke explosion that would be the bomb


                  Cool Will follow this!


                    And here we are again gentlepeople

                    This time inspired by Phantasy Star 4's TriBlaster!



                    As for the tutorial requests:
                    I wont be doing tutorials for these, making one of these a day is already taking a chunk out of my time a day, and to add a tutorial to that would make it insanely tiresome for me.
                    Occasionally I might make a tutorial, but if you watch the few tutorials I did make, you should in theory be able to make all these as well.

                    As for the particle requests:
                    I am accepting requests, but not promising.

                          Ill keep it in mind!


                            Due to not having that much time today, todays particle effect is a bit lacking.. but with so many particles upcoming I can permit myself to not always deliver above-mediocre stuff.
