You should bring an artistic eye for presenting our 3D game assets in their best possible light - think movie poster style 3d renders! Ideally you would have an expert knowledge of 3D rendering. Your images will be used within the game's UI and also for marketing purposes. While prior experience with live operations is welcomed, we are open to candidates with a background as a 3d film/broadcast artist. You will work primarily in a 3d package of your choosing. Experience with realtime game engines would be beneficial.

  • Proficient in 3D rendering workflows – setting up materials, identifying and fixing modelling issues in the assets when needed and setting up lighting in your chosen rendering software
  • Knowing how to assemble resulting renders into a final composite for direct use within game UI would be beneficial but not mandatory
  • Prior experience with game engines is beneficial by not mandatory. A willingness to talk to Game Art leads about how their assets are setup in the game is required.

Details:

  • Broad knowledge of a particular 3D package, we are open to using the package of your choosing whether it's Maya, 3dsmax or Blender
  • Ability to use a software based rendering engine or a realtime rendering engine - as an example Blender and it's realtime renderer Eevee - to best exhibit 3D assets
  • Excellent Photoshop skills
  • Experience with rigged 3D character models
  • Knowledge of posing rigged 3d characters in keeping with their identity
  • Knowledge of importing assets into a CG package while maintaining their original engine setup - whether it's rigging and skinning, or texturing setups
  • Ability to visually access the look of a 3d asset in our engine, replicating and improving it's appearance for asset renders
  • Positive attitude towards working with real-time game engines such as Unity, Unreal or proprietary game engines
  • Experience with Jira task tracking and revision control will be a plus
  • Knowledge of the different 3d techniques such as poly modeling, UVs, texturing and material setup would be a requirement though you will mostly work with existing completed assets from our game teams
  • Substance knowledge would be useful but not mandatory
  • Some understanding of realtime engine PBR material setups would be beneficial
