SlothTom's Sketchbook

Hello there~ I’m starting a sketchbook as a means to keep track of my personal VFX work and force myself to ACTUALLY finish more personal projects… Also you guys can keep me accountable >:)

A little about me: I’m a self taught VFX artist just like many and have been doing VFX professionally for 2 years now. I enjoy making satisfying VFX and adding camera shakes.

Any feedback is very welcome!

Here’s what I am currently working on:

Genji slashes that only blooms on the very tip of the swipes to communicate sharpness. Also, I absolutely abused the camera-shakes and I don’t regret it lol

FX I did for our Global Game Jam. By the end, we didn’t really make a game but more of an art project… :confused:

This piece re-uses lots of sparks and smoke texture/materials. As for the warp effect, its 2 panning voronoi texture on a cylinder facing the cockpit.

Slowly chipping away at creating templates for my vfx pack this weekend. This time it’s the lasers!

The beam itself is using alpha erosion along with lerping from a noise texture to a gradient which fake the laser thinning.
