Also no test art - just do amazing on that first project and we will have a ton more for you to work on. We love freelancers who know how to consistently deliver and we keep them around.

The ideal applicant will have a strong sense of aesthetics and design, an efficient workflow, a deep understanding of light, color, and architecture.  You should also have the ability to work within a predetermined aesthetic. We can’t make you draw a certain way but if you can come really close to what we like. You're all set.

  • Understand project limitations, milestones, and risks and work accordingly;
  • Become familiar with graphic references to understand the artistic director’s intentions;
  • Create efficient and rig friendly low polygon models for the game integration;
  • Work with the Character Art team to create photo-realistic, detailed character designs and assets to be used within a game engine;
  • Provide proxy models for game integration;
  • Model rough characters in 3DS Max, taking into account skeletal proportions to set a basis for character structure;
  • Texture using Photoshop to apply and give colour to characters and generating normal maps to create texture;
  • Address critiques from Lead Artist and Art Director and make revisions in a timely manner;
  • Export models and textures into engine and make sure they work correctly;
  • Touch-up textures after engine integration to optimize quality;
  • Clean up scanned data;
  • Carry out other related tasks.

 

Minimum qualifications for role consideration:

  • A minimum of 3-5 years’ experience in game development modeling and texturing highly realistic characters using 3ds Max or Blender and Photoshop (or equivalent 3D and 2D programs);
  • Experience in AAA game production.
  • A killer portfolio. Show us your best, Not everything.

 

Additional qualifications that will move you up in the stack-ranking for considerations are:

  • Exceptional understanding of human anatomy, and clothing and a keen eye towards form, shape, structure, and silhouette in regards to modeling;
  • Ability to collaborate efficiently because of frequent interactions with other teams and team members on the project;
  • Attention to detail since the beauty of the characters are key elements of the player’s experience;
  • Superior eye for color and detail in creating texture maps;
  • Ability to take initiative to learn and adapt to new project practices based on evolving technologies;
  • Ability to maintain high quality and productivity throughout the project while meeting the deadlines.
