Fantastical Cake

For one of my tasks, I created a fantastical cake. Last week, I showed our class the props that I considered buying. One consists of stylized desserts. I asked the class what the fantastical cake should look like. Based on feedback, they wanted eyeballs, tentacles, and particle effects. I incorporated all three.

I started off by watching tentacle tutorials. My first tentacle was not that great. I could not figure out how to export hair particles. The second version is a tentacle that I modified that I found online.

I created eyeballs too! I wanted to scatter them on the cake in order to make the dessert appear outwardly.

Finally, I added electrical particle effects on the candles. I hope they do not slow down the scene.

Final Result

For my next task, I will be creating POV shots!
