Official VFX Sketch #8: VFX Classics

Welcome to the September VFX Sketch! This time around instead of a specific topic, we’re digging into those sweet, sweet nostalgia feels and going back in time altogether!

The Challenge: Pick an effect from one of your favorite classic games and recreate it! It can be altered or identical, but it should maintain the same overall feel. Think NES - N64 era of gaming!

Submitting: Create a new topic in the “Events > 08 - VFX Classics” category with your name in the title and the sketch number (e.g.: “Susie Stevens: Sketch #8 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.

Please be sure to cite your sources if you are using another 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!

Timeline: One month (Sept 3rd - Sept. 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
2nd Place (second most likes and buzz): 2nd place VFX Sketch 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 owners 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!


Thanks again for all the participation! Just a reminder we will regularly announce winners and launch the new sketch by the 3rd of every month, so hang in there tight! We’ve got another personal favorite lined up for October, which also marks our 1 year sketch anniversary! :heart: Stay tuned :wink:
