Wren Cromwell is primarily a character artist, though she prefers to think of herself as more of a character generalist, with the ability to take assets through as much of the real-time animation pipeline as possible. She is comfortable with modeling, UVs, map baking, texturing (knowledgeable of physically-based rendering pipelines as well), prepping the asset for rigging, animation, and engine integration. She has worked on such popular games as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and has created immersive VR experiences like Kaidro. More recently, she has gained experience in more specific areas, such as FACS-based facial blendshape pipelines and creating realistic (and efficient) hair for game characters.
