  2. A small sample of work from Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm. I've only been on the project for a year so I'm glad some of my contributions have made it to the released version. I'll have more as soon as the stuff I've animated becomes public.

    **Update** my inbox has exploded

    Q. Who did all the models and rigging?
    A. The character art and technical art crew on the Heroes of the Storm team at Blizzard. I did not do any of the models, textures or rigging.

    Q. Did you use any mocap?
    A. No

    Q. Are you sure?
    A. Yes

    Q. What about video reference?
    A. For a few like the Nova dance and the Tychus Dance

    Q. What did you use to render?
    A. Heroes of the Storm engine with a setup shown to me by another animator on the team.

    Q. Is all the secondary animation in-game physics?
    A. about 70% keyframed and 30% simulation. On Johanna there's no physics. Nova's hair is mostly physics.

    Q. I still don't believe you about the mocap...
    A. Thank you for watching I hope you enjoy the game :)

  3. I was fortunate (or unfortunate depending on your aversion to public speaking/demonstration) to participate on the artist stage at Blizzcon 2015 alongside Sam Didier and Peter Lee.

    For my demo, I chose to do a new attack animation for Kharazim, the Monk from Heroes of the Storm. I was the primary animator on him for several months and thought it would be fun to create a new auto-attack animation.

    I had one hour to complete the animation which I had 2 pre-made poses to work from. A lot of credit goes to the HoTS technical department not only for the rig but also the myriad of tools and utilities that allows me to create animations rapidly.

    I will be publishing a new demo short soon to showcase some of my more recent work which will include the Monk.
