Decided to finally open a sketchbook. Going for a highly optimized and performant result for third person action games. Don’t know what else needs to be said other than I love working on VFX and am pretty convinced its where I want to be. Cheers!
Previous Attempts For This Project
Worked through a tutorial this week. Learned a bit about blueprints, some photoshop skills I didn’t use much previously, going to be working up the cast and impact effects for this next I think to really solidify the knowledge. @JangaFX did a nice job with this. Thanks Nick!
Another couple of weeks, another tutorial down. Feeling like I am slowly but surely getting the concepts here.
Another few weeks, another tutorial down. I am finally feeling comfortable enough to tackle effects without a direct tutorial to draw on. I think my first effect is going to either be a frost nova or frozen orb from Diablo 2 done in an updated style for UE4.
Worked up a spotlight effect for a project. Turns on/off based on user input (not shown). I will not be taking this particular direction farther though due to project needs. Thought I would share it here anyways.
Not really sketch book’ish. This is an effect I created for Black Ice Studios for the game Revenants (revenantsgame.com). I am working on other effects as VFX Artist for them, but as this one is complete and I got the go ahead I am sharing.
