Tyler is the Lead Character Artist at Microsoft’s Black Tusk Studios in Vancouver, B.C.
He began his career at Treyarch (Activision) working on the Spider Man 3 video game after attending Vancouver Film School. Next, at Naughty Dog he helped make the first iteration of the Uncharted series, creating the majority of the game’s pirate and mercenary enemies.
After Uncharted, Breon began work at Sony Santa Monica on God of War 3 and later, God of War Ascension. On GOW 3 he created the titan Cronos, a character that was literally a moving environment (relative to a titan, the player was the size of a flea!).
He also created Hercules (and many other characters) for GOW 3 and the first iterations of the titan Hecaton for GOW Ascension. During his career, Breon has also taught classes and written articles for major publications on the subject of character art and design. Before joining Black Tusk, he was the Lead Character Artist at Big Red Button Entertainment, a new video-game studio near LA, where he developed their character pipeline while working on their first, unannounced title.
