Infinity Effects

I was asked early in the project to find a unifying style for the effects in Infinity. I wanted something stylized that would blur the line between effects that felt energetic and epic, and effects that felt small as a reminder that the characters were toys and not life-size. I know that's a strange juxtaposition but I thought it was worth trying for. I think they achieved this effect even better in the final game than I did here.

  3. so being unfamiliar with effects, I assume these are the climactic frames of animations? do you do them all in ps?

    where do you put the frames of the animation together?

    thanks for sharing!!

  6. Thanks Will, Dave, Matthew, and Gino!

    Adam: I'm glad you like it! I've been totally hooked to Infinity Blade II recently, you guys did an awesome job with that.

    Kyle: These are just concepts, not part of an animation. The effects artists would re-create these in three dimensions using Maya and proprietary tools.
