So, I guess I’ll start this with my recent works in Unity.
I started making some League of Legends fan arts in Unity to train my VFX skills, learn new techniques and gather some feedback. So I thought I should share them here, to know what the masters of this industry think of them.
Absolutely love all this, I’ve always been fascinated by stylized FX and I must admit a bit intimidated by it, that being said , a high level of artistic skill is easily shown in all these. but Im not expert in stylized but can definitely see the timing as russell mention and over all layers of art are superb.
Not sure what’s Riot stance about it, but I did it using Wooxy and a Maya plugin developed by a custom skins team (I think). Basically it extracts the assets from the game, and then I can import them in Maya using the plugin. Then, I simply re-export them in Unity with the animations.
I don’t really want to create another topic for this, so I’ll just post it here. I hope it’s okay. :x
I decided to work on a new League VFX (it’s been some time), and I’d really appreciate some feedback. As per usual, I’m trying to stay as close as possible to the gameplay and feel of the game.
This time, it’ll be Hextech Anivia. This skin already exists, but it’s a bit old, and it does not have custom particles, so I decided to give it a try. I personally really dig the Hextech theme (magic + crystals + tech), so yup. Also, I think I’ll only make the ultimate. Not really inspired for the rest of her kit, and the holidays are over soon.
Here is my current WIP for her ultimate:
My current concern would be that the main smoke effect is too visible and that would be pretty bad for the spell readability and general clarity.
In terms of game play clarity I think it’s pretty good. Maybe the Q could use a longer a trail. The colors of the ball are a bit too bold for my taste. I mean the black specifically. Maybe lighten that up so it’s not standing out so much, purple or something,. I love the ult but maybe that is too much as well. I’m thinking it terms of it being in the middle of a 10 man team fight. If every ability was like that I don’t know if I could tell what was happening. That’s my two cents! Looks great!
