FX Artist


FX artists are tasked with recreating real-world, imaginary, and other dramatic effects for use within games. For instance, weapon projectiles and the trail effects from them, explosions, effects from magic spells, sword trails, etc. are all effects that would fall under the purvey of the FX artist. These effects are generally created using particles and materials. The FX artist must have a solid grasp of particle systems and the material system and how to combine them to achieve the desired results to bring the world to life.
