Blizzard Trio

Recently I had the opportunity to paint this trio of characters -- obviously one each from the three main Blizzard titles.  Ever since I started working there, I have been DYING to paint a hydralisk, so this was a welcome treat :)

They were painted in a way that they can be used independently or grouped, and in super high res so they can be printed very very big.  Fun stuff!

The Burdens of Shaohao are now all out!

The last part of Shaohao's was released at the end of last week!  There are 6, including the prelude in my last post.  We learned a lot through the production of all of them .. for me they get better and better every time.  To watch all 6 in sequence, go first to the prelude I linked before.

Shoutout to Doug Alexander, Lucas Merino, Josh Horst, Micky Nielsen and all the other people who helped to put it out - tons of work went in and I'm just happy to have been a part of it.

The Burdens of Shaohao

Feeling lucky today that a project I've been working on for more than a year has finally started its release!  I did the final 2D components of the art, (i.e., the painting part) while the story, storyboarding, animation, editing and sound were all handled by various amazing people all over Blizzard.  I learned a ton about storytelling and I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to be a part of it.

Thanks to everybody who took part, and everybody who watches :)

There will be 5 more parts, so stay tuned...
