    Let me be the first from the community to say welcome! Her demo video from 2011 I found through a quick search looks amazing. I think this is going to be an awesome addition to the SotA team.

    I can't wait to see the pet animations in game now. Also all the critters that will be trying to eat us!

    Oh Houston, you rouge you ;)

    That reminds me about the time I first fell in love with an older woman after reading one of Tracy Hickmans novels, I just couldn't help myself....
    "and then I found out she was a Dude"!:eek:

    Ever since then I've carried the emotional scars of never marrying a woman that looked old enough to be my wife.....
    Oh the tragedy of it all :(,,,

    An animator who was hired to the team it would seem. I hadn't heard of her before, but her demo reel linked in the first post is impressive work.

    So how do we know there was a new hire and that she works for the team other than the OP saying she does?

    Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Must have missed an announcement somewhere.

    Taking them at their word I guess.

    LinkedIn shows that there is an animator with that name in Austin.

    Will she be observing the form of our liege, Lord British and DarkStarr in their duel to use as in game combat animations?

    Oh, perfection. Get them to wear motion capture suits and then add them to the game as combat actions.

    Darn though, the suits will probably clash with the puffy shirts. :p
