This is my work that I did in my spare time.
I just had an idea to create an interesting effect with a surface tension, and I went through several options to this one. I used Houdini Arnold and Nuke.
I had some difficulties in implementing the environment, in the end I chose a simple method, procedurally create curves on the surface and create a relief based on them. This made it possible to add an additional effect by touching the drops.
And also the surface tension, I used a simple setup for this, it's not perfect, but it's fine.
It was also necessary to add the interesting behavior of the droplets in the movement. There were different options and even funny, in general I managed to carefully separate the drops, it gave an interesting effect.
