Tried to submit, but could not due to the servers issue, so submitting as a standalone.

Here is a rough wip. It's a rather iffy way of creating the liquid effect, but it can produce a reasonable result.

Sylon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/10/2012 19:54

I see how you did this and it's very genius.

Excellent work!!

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/10/2012 17:10

it's a fantastic animation effect but it doesn't at all look like lava. it's more of a shallow swimming pool of hot soup

LachieD (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/10/2012 16:32

 Awesome! Every bit of it!

PoisonousJoy (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 8/10/2012 11:33

 holy shit

failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 8/10/2012 03:13

Thanks so much for posting that link.  I will study it for sure. 

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/9/2012 16:06

Thanks for the comments guys and gals! I've been conducting further experiments with this and have taken a slightly different approach with some adjustment to the movement of the wavy lines which I think would make the liquid look better.

I agree with Franuka that it would benefit if it looked more thicker and moved slower. I also would have added lava crusts floating on the top.

I'll probably try a water variant next:)

DragonMarx (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 8/9/2012 06:58

 Kinda glad this wasnt put in XD jk but really i would have lost to you if you posted this in the challenge

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 8/8/2012 15:00

Yuran (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/8/2012 13:14

Asterix@ you are standing far away even unto chicken broth 

Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 8/8/2012 12:42

Whoa, amazing animation! It's a pity this wasn't entered, would've won for sure.

JuninFC (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 8/8/2012 12:10

Wow , that lava moviments are really great ! Love that !

Asterix (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/8/2012 11:36

What a wonderful tomato soup! And cool seamless animation. But actually I don't understood about peoples...

Yuran (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/8/2012 11:22

Damn, cool animation! 


Блин, патрясная анимация!

Yuran (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/8/2012 11:15

Hey, so this lava animation! (Bad connection to the Internet - thought that the picture is static)
Very cool, the effect of swaying the surface of the lava
looks awfully hard to
(I can not even imagine how much time it took to create the animation.)
Even in doubt, hand it work.
Bad that this does not look like lava located on the ground.

Эй, так это лава анимированна! (плохое соединение с интернетом - думал что картинка статичная)
Очень здорово, эффект колыхания поверхности лавы выглядит ужасно сложно!!!
(даже не могу представить сколько заняло время создания анимации).
Даже появились сомнения, ручная ли это работа.
Плохо что эта лава не выглядит расположенной на земле.  

Yuran (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/8/2012 10:57

Very nice donut ))
Best work!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 8/8/2012 10:35

You got my imaginary vote!

Franuka (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 8/8/2012 08:06

 That's so friggin awesome. I think the consistency feels more like water (not as dense), but it still feels so alive. I love it.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 8/8/2012 07:37

Wow, that lava animation is really fluid!

RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 8/8/2012 07:26

This is just lovely.
