On latest Firefall Live show fan experienced lenghty talk about making visual effects and being an artist at The Red 5 (authors of the game). Full talk is available here, but take into consideration that it's over 1 hour long. There is also text interview up for grabs. Let me post a fragment as an incentive to read the whole thing:
What does a Visual Effects Artist do?
Scott: Explosions, lasers, smoke, all that stuff is visual effects. Marc helps me out by giving me the tools to create the different effects we do. For example we’ll put in a request for fog volumes and Marc will give us what we need to complete that task. Another example is the new effects for Fuel Air Bomb, Marc gave us the tech to turn that into a nice explosion. (like in the picture below)
I always like to read about professionals' work, behind-the-scenes glimpses like that. Do you like it too?
