🏳🌈 Come Together Stronger
Maxon needed a graphic for their call for art to celebrate Pride.
If you identify as LGBTQ+, you can submit your art to Maxon to be featured during #PrideMonth - details here.
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I was thinking about what it is I appreciate about the best parts of humanity. I was thinking about how much better it is when we all come together, regardless of our differences.
Our uniqueness can contribute to make the world a better place.
To visualize this, I used Trapcode Particular from Red Giant
I wanted particle streams of various colors coming together. To do this, I used lights as emitters. I set Particular to use the light's color as the particles color.
Then, I used Particular's flocking to make all of them move from the light's position to a central location (a second, hidden system, being used to attract the main particles). Once they hit the central location, those particles ended and spawned multiple particles in another system that used environment wind and air turbulence to move upward.
I also added a couple of extra systems streaming off of the visible particles to add more visual interest.
Trapcode Particular enabled me to achieve a very complex-looking result in very little time.
❤🧡💛💚💙💜 Happy #Pride, everyone!
