Tina joined Studio MDHR in 2015 to work on Cuphead as a Concept Artist and 2D Animator. She designed and animated Baroness Von Bon Bon and the mini-bosses for the level Sugarland Shimmy. She created concepts for and animated enemies for various platforming stages. She likewise had the pleasure of animating several bosses for the King Dice fight, including; Hopus Pocus, Pirouletta, Mr. Chimes, Pip and Dot and the Tipsy Troop. In total, Tina has animated over 60 characters for Cuphead adding up to nearly 9000 drawn frames.
