An FX artist is responsible for FX animation, procedural simulations, dynamic simulations, and particle and fluid systems—but what exactly does that mean?

In film and games, it translates to earth-shattering explosions, colossal tidal waves, blazing fires, reams of smoke, magic spells, devastating destruction, and so much more!
