My Bio
My name is Hai Phan and I'm a character artist for games.

I went to art school at SCAD, and then did 3d modeling for a naval subcontractor before I finally made the jump into games. I was at ArenaNet working on the Guild Wars series for nearly 5 years, and then moved on to Trion Worlds working on Rift and other projects for 2 years, and now I'm at Blizzard Entertainment working on Overwatch.

There's actually a lot more art work (especially if you're looking for old Guild Wars stuff) you can find on my personal web site: [link]

Thanks for stopping by my gallery!

Man I know you and your stuff for a while, amazing work you did there for all the big games you worked on.
I'm currently a student at a game arts school but sometimes... well it's not an easy job...
And now I'm playing Overwatch and remember that I know your deviantart account.

I really look up to you! You are kind of a role model for me.
I would do anything to just sit right next to you at work and learning form a true grandmaster.
