Making a Splash!

A few images we created a little while ago required a gorgeous liquid chocolate splash.  How do you make a chocolate splash CG image look so mouth watering?  

 The project was helmed by David Parvin who did an initial set of sketches showing a bar of chocolate formed from a maelstrom of liquid.

 We began with some liquid dynamics rough shapes which were then sculpted into a beautiful form by Ben Simonds here at Gecko.

 Using volumetric shading combined with sub-surface scattering and a controlled glossy outer surface, the chocolate takes on a mouth watering quality you can almost taste!  Dynamics/Sculpting Ben Simonds  Lighting/Shading/Comp Jonathan Lax  Direction David Parvin
