Overwatch: Reveal Cinematic

Overwatch: Reveal Cinematic

What an exciting BlizzCon it’s been this year!  I’m SO excited to be able to talk about Overwatch publicly now after the announcement last week.

I was extremely lucky to be able to work on Widowmaker’s hair groom for the cinematic!  In addition to being able to work on this cinematic, which was exciting in itself, Widowmaker herself was just so badass, PLUS I got to learn all about XGen while working on this groom.  It was a big learning curve since XGen is a completely new way of working than I’m used to, but it came out with some great results!  Widowmaker’s hair was created using XGen’s Tube Grooming, which you can see a little bit of below.
