  • Very strong artistic skills, with the ability to translate art direction into reality.
  • Significant experience with 3D modelling tools such as 3ds Max, Maya, or ZBrush, in a videogame environment.
  • Strong understanding of human form and anatomy.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Deliver a wide range of high quality character art required by the game.
