The ReBreathers - Smoke Sim / Atmosphere

Personal Work created in ZBrush and Keyshot. I created this smoke using Blender, running a simulation and choosing my favorite frame to import as a Density Texture to Keyshot, using a scattering medium material. Keyshot's scattering medium is a lot of fun to use, but it's still a feature in its infancy. Looking forward to the feature becoming more robust!

The ReBreathers:

Concept of an Alien species that spends most of it's time in a Zero G environment. Having consumed the atmosphere of their planet of origin, they scour the galaxies for gaseous or liquid planets. After extracting the atmospheres or sources of liquid, they manually evolve their genetic makeup to incorporate the new gas / liquid compounds into their biology. By this fashion, they alter their DNA with every new planet they extract from and guarantee a never ending supply of vital, life sustaining resources. Each new substance they adapt to consume, alters their perception, and in turn, their culture.
