Hello! Your modelling work is absolutely amazing. Would it be possible to get a sort of reference guide for Valeera now that she's come out? I'd like to be able to see all of her armor in t-pose. Thanks so much for your work on HotS, and WoW!

P.S. is there any chance we could get a hold of her Demon Hunter skin model?

Hi, thank you!
If I ever get a task for cosplay references kit, I will make sure to take screenshots  in T pose.
I did not work on Demonic skin, so I won't post it.
