What’s the easiest way to create a paint splash effect in Blender? You may have thought of fluid simulation, but even easier way would be to use particles, force fields and metaballs. Garnish it with the principled shader and you’re good to go.

  1. And another awesome stuff from the wizzard of blender...
    I can´t imagine how you always find such creative solutions.
    Wish I had only 25% of your knowledge.

  2. It only lacks a warning... If you are using home PC without some powerfull CPU/GPU... Forget it ;) Especially in viewport - rising smoke res HURTS.
