Gem Miner

Apparently this is a genre of game I've never heard of where you mine objects out of a field of other objects. Followed a Unity tutorial to make this (and the gem textures are off the Unity Asset Store) because I wanted to brush up on my C# skills.

Going to take this and add some VFX for the harpoon fire, connecting to gem vs rock and the retract.

And maybe some explosions. Because why not.

Back at it

Been slacking on the portfolio building, but 3-Day weekends are great to remedy that! Six months of not touching UDK because I've been working and I've really lost all my skills. So I decided to redo all my ImbueFX intro Cascade tutorials to remind me of what I've forgotten. Also simple effects will be a good basis for more elaborate things.

I also got Xsplit Broadcaster to work with Fraps so I don't have half speed gifs anymore.

First off this is the in-prog of something I want to do that'll be like a rain of Melf's Acid Arrows. Obviously the arrow is placeholder, but the idea is there.

Ammo pickup. Not finished. Want to add some sparkles and a displacement sphere grid around it to make it a bit more sci-fi.

Rocketfire and a ball of lightning. Both of these are using Bill Kladis' textures just to learn the principles.

Electricity AoE

Simple Electricity Area of Effect. CamStudio recorded it at about 1/2 speed for some reason. Once I have all my spell effects done I'll do a high quality FRAPs capture.

Celestial Effect

Starting making various spell effects. This one is a sort of celestial star effect.

Kind of bad quality and slowdown on the gif. I'm  going to hold off making videos of them all individually and upload them together to one Spell Effect video.

AoE Effect

Finished ground pound effect.

The animation and character is from the ImbueFX tutorial, but all the effects and the textures for the effects were made by me.

AoE Spell In Progress

In progress shot of a ground pound spell. All the mesh particles are in, just need to finish up making the ground look cracked.
