A downloadable asset pack
Magic shield is a VFX buildup particle made in Unreal. It was built with Niagara as a part of a larger scene. The scene depicts a raging battle going on with projectiles and arrows flying around. Black Tar cooking in a tower and smoke everywhere. Amid the chaos a mighty wizard casts his spell in an attempt to block and dissipate the oncoming danger.
I've added a downloadable brief explaining how I made it in more detail. In there you can also read about my motivation and inspiration.

Enjoy the effect.
