    DeflatedBalloonType0073

    In this Video, Mario asks us how to make this cool looking Balloon Type from Pierre Bourjo. Luckily, Chris has been learning more about Vertex Maps and he shows us how to use them to make different stiffness in our balloon shape. We also use Soft Body dynamics, Sweep Nurbs, Reflectance, Terrible Cursive, and one Softbox to recreate the look.

    In this Tutorial, Patrick Goski and Nick Campbell answer a question from brett_morris during AskGSG about how to make a jelly fish scene similar to this great render by James Gardner-Pickett.

    First Patrick models the Jelly fish, then we make a custom transparent texture and start to build the scene. Then, we both light and finish texturing the shot using HDRI Studio Pack.
