TF2 drawing challenge day 9: Favorite “Meet the Team” video.

Engineer’s video, partially because I remember falling in love with his character so freaking hard the first time I watched the video, right at the moment where he says the line quoted above. But also, I love it for the way it paces out so much information so well. We first see him, and we think, “Huh, just a chill Southern dude playing a guitar.” But then we start getting tidbits of information that pile up to let us know he isn’t JUST any chill Southern dude, but in fact, a genius surrounded by murder machines, who’s actually pretty sinister. And then the way the atmosphere changes as he says his final line, and the music tips into minor key, and the camera pans out and we see his full setup… Gahhh I love it.
