  • Demonstrate peer communication, time-management, and organizational skills.
  • Participate in build reviews, address bugs, and guide art quality through a balance of visual improvements and performance constraints.
  • Prepare visual documents that capture asset progress for reviews with our brand partners at Lucasfilm.

Requirements & Skills:

  • 4+ years of production experience as a character artist; mobile development experience a major plus.
  • Experience working within the Unity game engine.
  • Expertise working with modeling and texturing programs such as Maya/3DS Max, Photoshop, and 3dCoat.
  • Ability to work from reference materials such as photography or concept art.
  • Familiarity with version control and asset management software (Perforce).
  • Experience working in character art pipelines.


 

Please apply with the following:

  • Link to online portfolio(s)
  • Examples of character art workflow (concepts, model wireframes, UV layout, textured final asset).
  • In-game characters with screenshots or video footage citing your specific contributions.
  • Examples of achieving character likeness in with 3D sculpts, texture painting, and material creation.
  • Resume
