Overwatch Reaper Soldier76 chibi



This is a custom embroidery design featuring the characters Reaper and Soldier76 in chibi style from the video game franchise Overwatch.

Soldier: 76 was designed using a top-down approach, where developers started with the flavor/story/art side of the subject and built mechanics around it. The original concept was pitched by Chris Metzen, and the team instantly got onboard. From there, lead concept artist Arnold Tsang, Metzen and art director Bill Petras worked together to finalize a character concept. By this stage, the developers had the idea of making 76 a “normal rifle guy,” in regards to his gameplay style. Few problems were encountered during development, and only his heal ability changed. It was intended that he be easy for players from other FPS games to play, allowing them to ease into Overwatch before moving onto more exotic heroes. Metzen leveraged Soldier: 76 as a “fulcrum point” of the story/setting. He is said to represent Overwatch at its greatest.

The character of Reaper was inspired entirely by concept art for the gameā€”his actual character was developed after his appearance was presented. Under Overwatch’s original leveling system, Reaper’s wraith form would give him healing abilities once he reached a certain level. Reaper once had a slimmer design with a mask that was more human looking and dual wielded SMGs.

Both the Reaper and Soldier76 from Overwatch were redone in Chibi form
