Premise:
Im doing my scary sketch based on The Ring. I have some ideas brewing but the basic idea is to create the ghostly/glitchy tv ghost of Samara Morgan. Im going to use some chromatic abberation, some post processing, and do a little set dressing/lighting to sell it.

@DeepSpaceBanana did some work on his blog creating a glitchy hologram where he disturbs the verticies. I will be testing something like that out.


@Cyanilux on twitter did a cool glitchy effect where she distorts the UV in an interesting way. I will try to replicate that.

And Harry Alisavakis made a post on his blog about chromatic abberation that I will give a read.


@klemen_lozar on twitter has a great post explaining his take on a glitchy effect that I will pull from as well.

Thats really the bulk of where my ideas came from so far.

Creating a scary scene for my piece. It definitely sets the mood lol

Im working on some tv static/channel change post processing effects to help sell the tv ghost feeling. I decided to throw some classic Nickelodeon images in for testing. It gave me a break from the scary stuff :sweat_smile: lol.

Really like the “wobbly” distortion/chromatic aberration when she stands nearer. The motion really has a fluid feel.
Great work on this :slight_smile:
