Sam "Samwise" Didier is the Art Director at Blizzard Entertainment. Among the veteran Blizzard employees, Samwise Didier has been a consistent artist for many years, and recently his style has been the artistic direction of choice for all Blizzard franchises. Didier was among Blizzard's first artists, joining the company in 1991.
Background[edit | edit source]
Didier's greatly exaggerated physiques and vibrant, bright color palette has dictated the artistic style of Warcraft III, World of Warcraft and the now defunct StarCraft: Ghost, as well as Heroes of the Storm. Didier has also designed and drawn many of the graphical icons found in Warcraft III and World of Warcraft, and even provided some voicework for both.
Away from Blizzard, Samwise is responsible for much of the album art of Swedish power metal band HammerFall.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Didier's first job was as an usher at a local movie theater.
- Didier is part of Team Horde (as "Warchief Samwise") on Azeroth Choppers, along with Gary Platner and Jason Hutchins.
