Art and animation, at your service!

The Pirates of The Burning Sea Vault has a new interview with developers Bruce Sharp and Tom Tobey posted.

Art Director Bruce Sharp has been in the game industry since 1993, first working with Seattle-based Sierra Online and later on with Microsoft Game Studios. He also teaches commercial illustration and 3D animation at the Art Institute of Seattle, and as such was primarily responsible for recruiting most of the young FLS art and animation team members.

Lead Animator Tom Tobey is probably one of the most visible devs on the POTBS official forums and seems to be quite popular there, particularly with the "off-topic crowd". Prior to working for FLS, Tom had worked on several other game titles including Everquest and Everquest 2.
