Looking forward to the feedback and il post my updates!! (still sketching some ideas on what style to make for this sketch)

After some testing, I decided that it’s going to be an attack. The player will open a portal to outer space and a comet will appear from the portal striking the enemy in an explosion. Small update on the WIP of the space portal! Lighting036


This looks awesome already! :star_struck:
How did you make the space wobble like that? :scream: It’s amazing haha! :smiley:

Thanks!! to make the space wooble what I did was get an image of space and deformed the UV with a twist effect:) I attach a pic of the relevant nodes ( I use Unity but it should be quite similar in unreal)

So the First nodes from the left is just making a UV twist like a spiral, then use it to offset the screen position and finally plug it to the uv of the image:)


I added the trail and an explosion (Implosion Tecnicaly i guess). Its finished now as I cant afford to spend more time on it. It was a very fun challenge!!! I cant wait for next month’s sketch!!
I seem 100% unable to make high quality gifs so please watch it HQ version here.
