This one is almost a design-concept parody -- curve flow, dual mesh, pantone colors. But quick! Actually in before deadline this time. Now to fix all the things...

Post-deadline edits: fixed the gamma on colors, ditched the Pantone grey to darken the background, pumped up the blur and in-camera effects for better fg separation, changed the material on the unextruded left side to look less like water. That plus higher-res render (Redshift with Altus denoiser) makes the edits late late late, so I've hidden them here: https://vimeo.com/522350187 [vimeo.com]

Still dripping!
This seemed like such a simple concept... Particles are emitted from the feet, with velocity driven by the footfall, curling around a vector based on the foot's y travel. Finding ways to make the distribution of curves more interesting has a large overlap with finding ways to crash the sim. So, in the end, a lot like a long slog across a frozen lake. Is that sound at your feet magic happening, or just ice cracking? And suddenly it's Tuesday...

This one was fun, but I got caught up in reducing geometry noise and had to call it for the night. Camera edits with Switcher, rendered in Redshift3D with in-camera effects.
