Game Artist plays a key role in defining the visual style, design, and overall look of one of our games to create visually stunning characters, assets, and environments that will win the hearts of players around the world. In practice, this means (at least) the following:
Working on the visual style, design, and overall look of the game, creating visually stunning characters, assets, and environments
Using ideas as your currency and manifesting them in a conceptually clear format
Contributing with fresh artwork ideas to use in communities and forums
Getting a good grasp of our current and future projects (including animation, community, and marketing), and helping to ensure that the mark we leave is always top notch
Respecting the story and understanding how visuals shape character personas, in-game ambience and unwritten cues of upcoming plot twists
Feeling comfortable working with programmers, community, and everyone else on a game team
2D, 3D and/or UI art for mobile games is your trademark

Wide experience in game development projects and as a game artist
Ability to create versatile game art in high volumes while following an iterative approach to perfect your work
