Cyborg Knight, designed, modeled, textured and render in Blender 3D, for game engines with BSDF material capabilities. It is an FPS character that can double as RPG character. Fully rigged and animated. It features quad polygons instead of tris, in case you wanted to have tris you can simply divide the quads, otherwise it would be irreversible.
Obviously you can use it for so much more than just games. Like short films, visual effects or motion graphics. It comes with a wide variety of skins, in all the colors of the rainbow, plus black and white (see gallery)
It is fully rigged and its animations come as actions. It’s not game-ready, so you can still have some freedoms to customize it, fine-tune the animations and the textures/materials, like I said, it comes with 9 different skins, all of which are BSDF materials and come with Diffuse, Metal, Roughness, Normals, Emission and SSS maps.
There’s also damage textures (again, see gallery), in case you want the character to die or get battle damage. You can change the color of the skins by going into Photoshop or GIMP and using Hue and Saturation to shift the desired color (red, orange, blue etc.) to your desired tone and hue, alternatively you can change the emission color as well to change the color of the light-up parts to your desired hue.

Peaceful tranquility is what this After Effects template was designed to portray. After so many explosive, violent and epic AE templates, it was only fair to give the action a rest and what a better way than with a calm sea or lake. Continuing with the aquatic theme from the last template, this one offers a completely new perspective; Rather than UNDERwater, this one shows the water surface instead, with waters tranquil enough to reflect the text hovering above it.
This After Effects template is relatively simple in terms of inner workings and doesn’t have too many options, however you can still fine-tune the color of the sky and water to match your needs. As always, the “metallic” text isn’t actually rendered via any special plugin, all you need is After Effects’ Classic 3D render engine, which is the one selected by default when you open After Effects.
The lens flare is ALSO pre-rendered, and it will be occluded by whatever text you put there, so you don’t really need any plugin for it either.
After the unimaginably small, the unimaginably big! What am I talking about? Outer space, of course. Spiral Galaxy is one of those After Effects templates that I’ve been waiting forever to release. First of all because I love astronomy and celestial bodies, but second, because I’ve been working on this template for a very long time. I just couldn’t get it right! I have tried just about every single trick in the book and tried to create this effect through different methods, but every single time, it somehow managed to look terrible. Until I decided to just go with an actual particle system and use the forces of nature at play in an actual galaxy like rotation and gravity.
Colorization wasn’t an easy feat either, in this After Effects template, I wanted people to be able to colorize the galaxy just the way they wanted, so I had to layer it and use plugin upon plugin, stacked on top of each other to create a vibrant color scheme that looks good.
This After Effects template does not require any third party plugins, as everything is pre-rendered and ready to use, even the 3D text. All you have to do is customize it with your own color scheme and voila!
It is rare that I actually make an After Effects template completely uninspired but this is IT. This is a completely uninspired one. And by no means I want to say that I just threw a bunch of plugins together and called it a template. A lot of thought and work went into this one. But normally, when I make an After Effects template, I generally do it because something impressed me so much that I want to turn it into a motion graphic. And it can be a video game, it could be a film, another motion graphic, even dreams. Once inspired there’s no power on Earth that will stop me. I will want to make a really cool piece of art about that. Not this one though. It all started with me playing around and practicing with Particular and the final product resembled a neuron. It looked very organic and I loved the way it looked. So I decided to make more of it and call it a brain. In the end, after hours and hours of tweaking the plugin I came up with this. Hit the break to watch it in movement, because that picture above does not do it justice.
Do you like pixel art? 8-Bit graphics?? Old school videogames??? If so, then this After Effects template is for you! I just finished this little pixellated jewel, even the soundtrack and sound effects have 8-Bit elements in them.
At first I was unsure of how far should I go with the whole old school videogame theme. Should I do just pixellated text? 8-Bit videogame graphics? I spent hours trying to come up with an ideal format, to materialize text out of pixels in a visually appealing way. Then it hit me: Why not 3D Pixel art? And I know, I know, 3D pixels are called “Voxels”, which actually stands for “volumetric pixels” but almost no one knows what a “Voxel” is, so for now we’ll just call them 3D pixels. Anyway, massive digression aside, I ended up doing some nice pixel materialization in this After Effects template. When time came to add the sound effects, I tried everything. But the only thing that could go well with pixel art is 8-Bit sound effects and music. Hit the break to watch a video preview of this After Effects Template and some links!
Two new animated logos have been added to the Visual Effects and Motion Graphics portfolio. One of them (shown above) involves a beautifully sculpted 3D Animated character, the other one is, aside from the 3D text, completely animated in 2.5D, both of them, awesome. But hang on tight because there are still more to come! Visit my YouTube channel to read the descriptions to learn more about these new additions or like Evil Planet Studios’ Facebook page to find out before anyone else about the next updates and promotions!
Hello everyone! After the data loss Evil Planet Studios suffered earlier, this would be the first post. I couldn’t recover the previous ones. But fear not! What’s coming will totally blow your mind! For now, I will leave you with this new and awesome demo reel; Matte painting, sky replacement and color grading!
