Ideation, Creation & Everything In Between
When looking for particle effects images that I could use on my pixie effect I came across a webpage based on a game called Team Fortress 2, The page showed how Team Fortress 2 uses particles to create all different effects for actions that occur in there game.
I found the image below that shows the characters and how particle effects are used to make him demonstrate different emotions which I really liked. This is the kind of thing we are trying to do in our animation but use the particles to interact with other objects.
Here is a video that shows examples of all the different particle effects in Team Fortress 2.
