    My challenge and goal for (2021) to actually finish off my work in progress characters and 3D Print them. I wanted to share and show what I've done in my spare time while working and studying last year. Hope you like to see what is to come for (2021) and also if I inspire you to do the same with your work.

    Reinhardt |  Overwatch 2 | Deathknight Skin


    Moodboard / Thought Process

    For this personal project, I want to make the process as productive as possible and have a tone of fun designing Reinhardt's mech suit then implement Reinhardt into Unreal Engine 4 and make him as close as possible to Overwatch 2 Artstyle.



    If you are up to date with Shadowlands and Warcraft storyline, they have been 2 mortals that have worn the Helm of Domination, Arthas Menethil and Bolvar Fordragon. So, Who do I chose to influence the design? 


    A or B Conveniently enough...


    I'm more leaning towards Arthas Lich King design because of his nostalgia for World of Warcraft. As his design is so recognisable to fans of World of warcraft and even to people who haven't played Warcraft, they know who he is and it fits the Role of being Tank / Brawler for Overwatch 2. Plus with the added Ice ability for Reinhardt in PVE would be super fitting to play as a Frost DK in Overwatch 2.

    Bolvar's Design is amazing as I intend to use his War hammer design to influence Reinhardt Hammer design. As it looks insane in the cinematic and would be crazy to see that in-game when Reinhardt uses his Ultimate ability creating a radius Blizzard Storm and forming Ice spike around the environment. Stunning and them in place...

    Saying that DeathKnights have 3 specs in total:

    • Blood
    • Frost
    • UnHoly

    So,  potentially I have 2 different skin set to make for Reinhardt for those specs.

    Overwatch 2 Reinhardts' Face 



    I updated the Orginal Reinhardt head I created in 2017 when I was a student at Teesside University. I roughly sculpted the head to fit the Overwatch 2 head design of Reinhardt. As this would be good practice and also have an accurate awareness of space for when I'm designing the Helmet of Domination, the one that's wasn't snapped in two... anyways here are some of the development I did last night.

    for an overwatch looking thing, i think you rely too much on sculpting and too little on actually modelling.

    means, it looks a little noodly and not clean and precise like overwatch does.
  • JackHannah
    Yeah very true, I'm using my time as efficient as I can. So I don't waste any time in refining asset that doesn't work in 3D. Hence why parts of the character look very noodly as I spent like 2 hours last night just working on it, changing the head and pushing some ideas across until I have a set Idea of what and how the character is going to look like. I'd rather spend 5 mins messing around with quick ideas than spend hours 

    As I want to have a solid foundation before I go ham with detail and cleaning up the mesh  =)

    Overatch 2 Reinhardts Development 
    | WIP |



    It's been a while since my last post no more noodle sculpting, as I went through a burnout stage with the development of the Death knight design of Reinhardt, for the original skin from Overwatch and was trying to blend designs from both OW, OW2, and World of Warcraft.

    Also, I felt that they are too many resources online of Reinhardt's mesh from OW being ripped from the Games files, and would be too easy to claim ownership of the Hard work done by the character Artist at Blizzard Activation. I wouldn't feel that I accomplished or achieved with myself of making an Overwatch character and in a way cheating. So, my goal is to make Reinhardt from Overwatch 2 and get as close as I can and game-ready.

    I always strive to Inspire, Learn, challenge myself, Improve and keep moving forward. As when Overwatch came out, I knew I wanted to learn how to make characters from Overwatch.

    Still, a little more work to go but nearly there. Looking forward to starting to texture and getting Him in UE4 and hopefully get him rigged for some dope animations to show off as well.
