VFX Growth Journal

Hi everyone. After trying my hands at various aspects of 3D, a few weeks ago, I decided to focus on real-time VFX specifically because that is what I enjoy most.

I am very new at this, however, I have some knowledge of Unreal’s Niagara particle system and its material editor.

I decided to create this topic to hold myself accountable and to keep track of my progress. I would appreciate any and all feedback because I believe this is one of the best ways to grow as an artist.

PS: I have done one or two effects recently and will be posting them here. I also participated in the recent ArtStation Dragon’s Age Challenge. Lastly, some of my first few posts here would be based on what I learn from tutorials while adding my own personal touches to them.

Thanks for taking the time to read through and have a wonderful day.


Hi there. My first completed vfx; created following a tutorial. However, I did create the rune texture in photoshop and set up a shader to distort or wiggle it.

Some feedback would be appreciated.
