About The Artist

I'm McKenzie Hiltwine,

A Character Designer, Animator and Visual Development artist in the Animation and Comics industries! I'm a graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design's Visual Development Concentration with a minor in Film Studies and a current Masters student at Academy of Art University for 2D Animation.

My artistic specialties are (but are not limited to): style adaption, character design and early visual development work for all ages of animation, expressive and dynamic expressions and special poses, 2D and 3D Character turn around, character inks/layout, as well as color design and style development.

My true passion lies in storytelling, both visual and written. My goal is to collaborate with creators within the industry on animated projects and tell amazing stories with authentic characters and fantastical designs. I also adore anything spooky and cute and use that genre of media as inspiration for my own work!
