• Transfer and/or create lower resolution models from higher resolution models.
• Ability to deliver a model with clean topology and strong UV layout skills for texturing,
• Possess an artistic eye for detail and understand the technical specifications for each project.
• Work as an effective team player and successfully take direction from a supervisor.
• Adapt quickly to change – often having to toss out ideas and start fresh.

• Strong spatial awareness and a good sense of form, scale and proportion, and a keen eye for detail.
• A full working knowledge of modeling in Maya is required,
