Overview: Mastered by mother nature, beautiful design is a subjective goal that most VFX hope to achieve. Riot Games Senior Artist, Ryan Woodward, brings applicable context from his early pencil/paper animation years, breaks down fundamental design principles and applies them with the simplistic thinking of a 2D animator. With thoughtful design, musical timing and a dash of personal aesthetics, VFX can deliver a peculiar emotional response that can fill the audience with unexpected wonder and intrigue.
