  • Collaborate cross-functionally with concept artists, designers, and programmers to integrate the visual elements seamlessly into the gameplay experience.

  • Lead the development of stylistic assets such as props, architecture, and organic elements, mindful of performance and memory constraints.

  • Critically review and provide feedback on environment assets and scenes to ensure a cohesive and distinct visual style.

  • Engage in strategic planning, helping to define the workflow, toolkit, and quality benchmarks for the environment art team.

  • Oversee optimization tasks, marrying stunning visuals with performance efficiency.

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of professional experience in 3D environment art, with a focus on stylized rather than realistic designs.

  • Proficiency in industry-standard software like Maya, 3ds Max, and Photoshop.

  • Exceptional skills in form, shape, structure, and silhouette in terms of modeling.

  • Advanced texturing abilities, coupled with expert painting techniques for maps such as diffuse, specular, and normal.

  • A deep understanding of lighting techniques to accentuate mood, spotlight key elements, and boost the overall visual appeal of stylistic 3D environments.
  • Experience using UE5.

Nice to Have:
