Official VFX Sketch #18: Hologram

Leaving the world of environment VFX behind, we’re diving into something a bit more techy. Let’s get to the pitch.

The Challenge: (create an effect based on the following): “Hologram”

Submitting: Create a new topic in the “Events > 18 - Hologram” category with your name in the title and the sketch number (e.g.: “Susie Stevens: Sketch #18 WIP”, and post your work! This includes any work in progress you may want to show as well as your final result. Final entries should be posted through either Vimeo, Youtube, or as a high quality GIF.


  1. Be sure to cite your sources if you are using other artists work as a base, or even taking inspiration! Remember, this is a learning platform, and is meant to be used as personal work that pushes you technically and/or artistically!
  2. All entries must be made during the current month. Assets must be newly made.
  3. Any tools/systems/workflows that pre-existed can be used.

Timeline: One month (November 3rd - November 30th 11:59 pm PST)

Scoring and Winners: Sketch badges will be awarded to all participants. Points will be earned based on the amount of likes/buzz your topic receives (hint: show your work in progress ;))

1st Place (most likes and buzz): 1st place VFX Sketch badge and avatar badge
2nd Place (second most likes and buzz): 2nd place VFX Sketch badge and avatar badge
All Participants (put forth a visible worthy effort): participation badge


Voting: To vote for your favorite entries, all you have to do is drop some love by clicking the like button on any of the owner’s posts within their topic during the course of the month. This is not the only factor in determining the winners but it is heavily influential in the final results. Winners will be selected by the 3rd of the following month.

As always, if you have any question feel free to ask below!

Good luck and have fun! :globe_with_meridians:


Oh I like this challenge—might even have a good idea for it. Can’t wait to see what everyone makes!

ooooh, this is right up my alley.


I imagine a lot of people will be looking at your blog posts for this, ha


Good one! I have a nice idea for this one.

I’m sure people will come up with much better effects than that!
