Sekani Solomon of Imaginary Forces in New York created a special project to breakdown especially for the SIGGRAPH 2016 audience – Power Up. He takes you through the entire creation process from concept and design, to roughing out, creation, final render and composition. But the magic of the demo is his dynamic animated crystal formation.
