These first few gifs aren’t on my ArtStation yet, but generally all previous and future work are to be uploaded there incase I forget anything here, so please check it out if interested! ArtStation - Vidas Rimkevicius
Been a little while but I’ve finally gotten back to working, hooray!
A little bit ago, Yoeri asked me if I’d like to play about with his new marketplace content that he’s currently working on, I was super hyped to play with it as I’ve seen him post about it before. I’ve spent the last two days shutting myself in a dark room making bright VFX (it’s not good for you, don’t do this) and I’ve got a couple of gifs I’d like to share here in this first post of the thread!
~~ I think gifs here don’t work because these are .mp4 files but unfortunately gifs from gyazo are quite laggy so I have to keep it at .mp4 to display the effect as-is And I don’t think they endlessly loop, but please click on the links to view the effects directly on gyazo ~~
I love trial and error in VFX as you can make some awesome things by accident so I wasn’t looking at reference for any of these effects and whilst I’m sure I could’ve done improvements on some of them by using reference, I find that part of the joy of making VFX for me is putting my hand in the magic hat and pulling out something random and building it from there.
I will also be filling this thread with any content I make in the future! And as always, I’m happy to receive any critique anyone may have, I have steel skin so fire away!
