Felis vfx sketchbook

Hi, I’m feli.
I’m currently working as QA and started teaching myself 3D modeling, unreal and vfx during the pandemic.
I want to share my journey with you here :3

Feedback is always welcome! I am looking to improve as much as I can since my goal is to get good enough to be hired as vfx artist some day.

One of my first vfx attempts, snowflake texture is not made by me.

Unfinished bonfire fanart, no flipbooks. Lost the files before I could finish it.

An attempt at a stylized water shader:

Flaming head vfx sketches I made for a friends character model:

And an orb portal prototype for the flameheads scene:

Space pirate ship vfx I made for the sketch #51. Ship mesh is free from sketchfab.

Quick concept I made during this week, planning to turn this into an effect over the next weekends. It’s basically a reverse ice shield, a person gets trapped inside and frozen.

Slowly creating all the parts I need. Magic Circle is a placeholder but I have some ideas for the real thing already.

I am imagining this more of a turn-based effect on one character - so I changed the shape to fit a humanoid.
Started to tweak the timing a bit but its still very off.
The snowflakes on the outside of the “cage” took a while, I had the basic idea from this video https://youtu.be/Wqk_CKSxlyU

Still missing: snow/ice on the ground when the freeze happens, effect to freeze the trapped persons to the ground, cracks and burst of the bubble at the end.
