instructor profiles Ashleigh Warner
"My main goal as an artist is to continue to learn and grow"
Ashleigh is a prop artist with six years of experience in the game industry making stylized 3D art, concept art, animation, and FX. She is currently at Blizzard Entertainment working on the World of Warcraft team, and has worked on four expansions: Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, and Battle for Azeroth. Her expertise is in hand-painting low poly game art, focusing on creating cultures and storytelling through objects--like a virtual set decorator. Ashleigh got her start with a traditional art education—a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Arts (Illustration) from Virginia Commonwealth University—and then moved into game art with a Master of Interactive Technology from The Guildhall at SMU. Now as an instructor, she created the prop art onboarding program and mentors new artists at Blizzard, and also provides feedback to students through portfolio reviews.
