Breakdown: Firebending VFX in the Mountains

A slightly adjusted reupload of the third video in my Avatar VFX series, this time with better shadows. I tried to make the Sun Warrior mountains and firebending all look as realistic as I could, and did my best to make everything look just a little more polished this time.

Quick breakdown of how I made my firebending video. I did most of the work in Blender, but all of the keying, rotoscoping, and final compositing was done in davinci resolve/fusion. Subscribe for more!
