Official VFX Sketch #37: Cute vs Scary

Cute vs Scary

Pick a side, “Cute” or “Scary” and create an effect based on your decision (either a cute effect, or a scary effect).

Make sure to include your decision in the title of your topic (e.g. Boaty McBoatface: Sketch #37 Scary)! Concluding the sketch, we will create a community-driven poll to decide which side has won (The winning side gets eternal glory and bragging rights!). Voting for the top 2 entries will be unchanged from current systems.
May the best side win! :smiling_imp: :partying_face:

Scoring and Winning:
As in the previous sketch we will be voting through a community voting system!

Judging criteria includes:

  • You showed WIP throughout the month
  • Your work is technically and artistically well-executed.
  • Followed challenge rules.

Submitting: Create a new topic in the " Events > 37 - Cute vs Scary " category with your name and sketch number in the title (Like this: “Youbi Kim: Sketch #37” ), and post your updates to your topic during the month!

When you are finished, Edit your first post so it holds the final effect in the form of Youtube/Vimeo Video or High-Quality GIFs.


  • Always cite your sources! Is your work based on someone else’s? Let us know! Always show your references.
  • All entries must be made during the running period shown below.
  • Do feel free to use any tool, system or workflow that pre-existed. Although we encourage experimentation.
  • Using a simple environment for presentation is allowed, but should remain simple and serve only as background.
