• Ensure that all art assets are performant, and fit within their memory budgets. Fix bugs as needed.
• Conduct research for reference material, participate in photo shoots and help build our texture library.
• Follow schedule and deliver assets on time.

Ideally, you will have...
• 3+ years professional experience as a 3D Artist, Vista Artist, and/or Matte Painter.
• Demonstrable ability to create beautiful and effective matte paintings for games.
• Strong understanding of lighting, colors, compositions, and design.

• A portfolio of highly detailed 3D art with a focus on environments and variety of subject matter (buildings, props, natural landscapes, etc.) Portfolio should show quality, taste, and ability to hit a photorealistic/believable look.
• Prior experience working within a game engine is highly desirable, but not required.
• Technical and creative sensibilities with a strong artistic vision.
• Motivated, proactive self-starter.
• Passion for making and playing games.
