I'm developing a shoot-em-up game and need to create really good looking explosions. The game will be in 3D but with 2D style gameplay. I want to use sprites (textured quads) and particle effects. I just need some pointers about how to make an explosion look really good. I'm looking for something that looks like this http://animedesho.animeblogger.net/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/EtherVapor%20%2812%29.jpg or this: http://animedesho.animeblogger.net/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/EtherVapor%20%286%29.jpg Thanks in advance!
