This cinematic marks a great achievement for me. Mercy was my first fully rigged character from start to finish! I was in the middle of learning how to rig at this point, taking a Rigging class at Gnomon and getting lots of training from my RigSim team at Blizzard. Mercy marks a great breakthrough for me! The wings had to fold up in a particular way that works with all the wing joints and pieces, which was a challenge for my noob rigging self 🙂 But it was a great learning experience!
Hair for Mercy and Girl
I was so lucky to be able to work on 2 hair grooms for this show! Both Mercy and the Girl’s grooms were done by me. Both of these characters used Tube Grooming again, which is becoming a preferred grooming style for me on all Overwatch shows! Tube Grooming really supports this super stylized hair style they want for Overwatch 🙂
