This piece was created for the advanced visual effects module. I am interested in fantasy and so chose to recreate a vampire being staked and turning to dust.

There is a little 3D, such as the skeleton which was a free download from Turbosquid.com, but the majority of the effect was created using Discreet Combustion, utilising some of the 2D particle effects. Apart from the skeleton everything else is my own work, the 3D elements made use of Softimage XSI.
