Dark Lightning Beam FX

Hi! I started working on this effect last Thursday, My goal is to make it almost entirely with 2D animated flipbooks. The idea for this is to be a charged orb that shoots a beam that last for at least 2 seconds.

Here’s how it’s going so far

Dark Lightning Beam Anticipation

Here’s a rough concept of the effect

I’d appreciate any feedback and suggestions on motion/color/shapes/etc

Thank you!


After almost 3 weeks of working on it I finally reached a final version of this, check it out on Artstation.
