2D Effects Design (Vector Art-drawn and painted on Cintiq in Illustrator)

I love effects, there is something about feeling the movement when you design them that has always  made them so fun to draw. I primarily design place and things, so when my designs move move it is usually for a specific story point or reason. When you play with color and key animation poses it really comes to life.


  1. These are such beautiful fx– thank you for posting! I've recently decided to start teaching myself 2D fx, but have found very little in the way of reference/how-to. Any tips?

  2. Hello,
    Good work Amber. I'm in the process in completeing my FX show reel at the moment. So was good to check out your designs.

    Hey McKay,
