Expecto Patronum by zakarranda Expecto Patronum by zakarranda
This one was really hard, but really fun, to make. I'm not particularly good at all the particle-y effects, which is why the dementor isn't shrouded in a cloak. So, I'm not really pleased with this one, but I felt like I was at or near my limit.

There were a lot of elements I gave careful thought to. The wand motion (becoming less flourished with each attempt), the streamers of light, the appearing and disappearing of the patronus, to name a few. And the slow color change of the red emote as the dementor gets closer.

See the collection here: [link]

Photoshop CS4
310 frames
Something like 4 hours over a few days. Those particle effects really do whoop my butt.

Love it :) Specially the flying emotes :) Great fluid animation. If i could change one thing i'd give him a slightly scared expression at the begining as the emote gets closer and closer. Apart form that, wonderful :)
