Character Artist and Designer
Josh Herman was raised in Colorado, where he attended a local animation college. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree, he moved to Hollywood in 2008 to continue his education at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Immediately after graduation, Josh began work at Legacy Effects on projects such asReal Steel, The Amazing Spider-Man, Total Recall andThe Avengers. Josh left Legacy to try his hand at games, working for Naughty Dog on Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. He was then recruited by Marvel Studios, where he worked on films such as Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Solider, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. He is currently developing his own IPs for short stories and games, and has recently contributed to Essence: Creatures from Ballistic Publishing.
"Josh impressed me from the first moment I saw his work. When he started at Legacy I saw a lot of raw talent and ability, while working with him I watched that grow into a focused skill that allowed him to breathe life into his creations. From natural animal recreations to fantastic robot designs his range was hard to miss. Since joining the team at Marvel, and pursuing his own projects, that ability has shown him to be one of the power houses in the industry. Above all that, his commitment to teaching and ability to pass on the knowledge has honed a well deserved confidence in his craft. Anyone who has a chance to learn from him should jump at the opportunity. "- Ian Joyner
