Cedric Loehr | Sketch 50

My contribution to the Area of Effect Sketch this month! I play VALORANT so much, I figured I’d recreate one of their effects: this time, Phoenix’s “Hot Hands” ability! I’m silver in VALORANT, but where would you rank my FX skills?

I use a flowmap with a few different noises for the decal surface, and I animated a noise texture masked by a gradient to create the fire. It isn’t terribly optimized because of the translucency, but I’m still working on my stylized flipbook pipeline. Thanks for stopping by, and critiques are welcome!


Nice and smooth. I’m liking how this is turning out.
