A busy month full of experimentation. First off was this football cloth simulation in X-Particles. I specifically aimed at creating tears in the seams, starting from one side of the ball and growing to the rest of it.
Second was this skin disintegration effect. This was achieved by using Fields in Cinema 4D R20 to drive another X-Particles cloth sim with tons of wind.
Third was a string simulation for the net on the basketball hoop. Bananas seemed like a better choice.
