Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Great job. Reminds me exactly of "The Day After Tomorrow".

Yeah, the only way I could make this better is to re-shoot the background plate with better equipment. The DV footage I used is quite mocked user added image

Did one last change. Increased the contrast a bit and gave it more bluish grade. Use the link in the first post...

the tornados look quite convincing to me, maybe not photoreal but the movement I like. Not too sure about the helicopter though somehow I think it could drift a bit more.

yea the movment of the helicopter dosent seem right, i think if you made the turn more gradual it would look a bit better.

Thanks for the input guys. I agree about the helicopter movement but I don't think I'll fix anything on this shot anymore. To me the worst part of it is the crappy DV footage. Thinking of doing a new shot with a matte painting in the background...
