VFX Artist

Hello, I am VFX Artist Seolhwa Shin.

I’ve been in mobile game development since 2013 and am currently participating in development at Netmarble Monster on projects like Monster Taming, Knights Chronicle, Monster Arena, and Raven as the Head of the Effects Team.

For those of you who want to implement cool effects right away, I have structured the class with a variety of effects that can be immediately put into practice. If you follow the examples step-by-step, you will naturally acquire even the basics that may have seemed tedious at first.

Although effects in game graphics are often said to have the highest barrier for entry, I believe there's nothing as easy and as fun as working with effects once you actually try it.

By simply following along, you can complete simple yet flashy effects, so how about creating them with me?

Interview with
VFX Artist Seolhwa Shin

배경 이미지
Why did you choose the theme of RPG Game Effects?

Mastering all of the strategies for generating effects might be intimidating unless you are a specialist in the area. With the objective of "Easy Effect Creation" in mind, I developed examples for producing a variety of effects using only the particle system. You'll find that basic strategies may produce a broad range of effects without requiring complicated expertise.

What would make this class special?

I want to emphasize that the goal of this lesson is to teach you how to make rich, high-quality effects using straightforward techniques. Although Unity Engine has established itself as the industry standard for casual/mobile games, there is still a persistent misconception that Unity cannot create eye-catching effects. I've designed this course's curriculum in such a way that you may produce top-notch game effects without having to learn any difficult theories or methods.

Is there anything you'd like to say to the students?

Making effects may be both simple and complicated. Unlike other visual components, practically all effect creation is engine-dependent. While it may appear that you only need to enter data into the engine, generating an appealing result may be difficult. This class will teach you how to approach the engine for effect production, as well as the perspective to investigate effects from.
