I did this little test to see if I can create a character with maya fluids. Needed a bit of research to create the volumetric feel for the body. In the end I used soup nodes in combination with Maya fluids. If you haven’t checked out the soup nodes please do so. They are a great addition to the standard maya dynamics nodes. You can find more information about them at www.soup-dev.com. As you can see this test is inpired by the Whisps creatures in Pixars Brave.
