I had a bit of fun with some animated latte art, this was just a test, done in 3ds Max. The latte art itself was animated separately as a texture in After Effects, I then brought everything across as a separate colour/bump/displacement map into 3d.
Was a nice creative challenge to get the right look of frothy milk and coffee mixing together to create forms, everything from mandalas, Buddha statues and a Bodhi leaf. More info on this at www.butterfly.ie
