I'm sorry if I'm bothering you at all, but I keep seeing people stating that you were the inspiration for the character Zarya oin Overwatch. And I can seem to find any official source on that whenever I search about it. Is this true or just people spreading lies/rumors?

And now I found, that this gorgeous real-life Zarya is a Warhammer 40k fan. As if you could get any cooler <3
Lovely art, keep up the good work :)
