(WIP) Frozen Arrow Attack - Inspired By League Of Legends


#1

Hi,

First of all, I want to wish a happy new year to all of you, I hope that you guys are doing great! I’m new to VFX and I’m currently working on my first FX. For this one, I was inspired by ‘‘Ashe’’ from League of Legends. I just love the work they accomplished with this character.

I would absolutely love to get feedback as I keep working on it. I’ll be updating this post with new GIFs as I work on it. This is very early stage work so there are many things I want to add, fix and work on but here’s what I got so far!

First I created a very basic attack:

Then I thought about a more advanced attack that I wanted to try out and came up with this:

For the first attack, I want to eventually add some trails to the arrow. I’d like to keep the same theme as Ashe which is snow and ice so I’ll be using a blue/white color palette for this one. I also want to add something at the beginning when the arrow is launched.

As for the second attack, I want to add an opening FX that traps the target into a pile of snow before the arrows are launched towards the target, which I think could look very cool :slight_smile:

Let me know what you guys think and how/what I can improve for this FX.

Thanks,
Pascal

Good start! One thing I really liked about another effect: the target get’s already “announced” beforehand by a little light from above. So, even if you don’t see the projectiles hitting the target, you know that they’re coming.

Here’s the full effect:

Maybe this could be a nice idea for your 2nd effect as well?

I totally agree, I’m definitely going to add something like that. Thanks for your suggestion! :slight_smile:

By the way I love Silver Yuan’s work, I saw this video before and this is just amazing work!
