Snow Angel Mercy
With the fast-approaching Overwatch 2016 Holiday event, I decided to create a winter skin for the healer Mercy. Using concept art by Arnold Tsang as a base, I did some research into various women's winter wear. Mercy is Swiss, so I looked into European fashion from sources such as the film Doctor Zhivago, as well as inspirations for the Overwatch style like the illustrations of J.C. Leyendecker. I found that by combining the fur trim, icy wings, and frosted lantern, I was able to give this skin a winter vibe without screaming Christmas.
