Axis Studios created the preview trailer for Riot Games’ League of Legends: Deadeye – a sneak peak of a new champion that sees beauty in the death of his victims.

Axis used minimal animation for the piece, using 3D volumetrics and effects as well as modifications in shading for a subtle, painterly look. With some animation completed in Maya, the trailer used lots of FX, creating disintegration, growing elements, and magical gun effects – these were all managed in Houdini.
