Anyways, enough talk. Here is the near finished result. I only have one more FX technique I'd like to do, which I'll complete later. That will involve glass on Quartz's right leg and having the blast reflect in the glass. I'll also be adding a slight glare on the glass, so I'll try my best to work up another tutorial on that, as well as on the smoke. I didn't have much time last night to grab screenshots, not to mention I'm typing all of this while at work!
