Senior Charecter Artist

Description

Art Production

· A comprehensive modelling and texturing portfolio showing a varied range of 3D character art completed to the highest standards.
· Extensive experience using ZBrush for sculpting, 3DStudio Max for modelling and asset construction, and Adobe Photoshop for texturing; alongside other relevant production packages for baking and re-topology.
· A full and confident understanding of all current generation production workflows, as they pertain to character and creature art asset production and requirements of related departments, specifically rigging and subsequent animation.
· A keen understanding and appreciation of structure and construction/silhouette in respect of modelling – resolution and density of game assets relative to world scale, engine requirements as briefed, and exceptional mesh topology skills.
· A detail obsessed eye for creating and manipulating texture maps for shader passes – diffuse, normal, specular roughness, dirt and weathering etc. – and excellent understanding of the value of maximising UV space for these textures.
· A critical awareness of the expense/cost of a game asset relative to the target engine/rendering requirements – poly counts and texture sizes.

Guidance and Leadership

· Support and guide other external artists as required in developing the highest quality character assets, within a given specification.
· Proactively use knowledge and experience to identify and solve problems before they affect the development team.
· Communicate progress and raise any issues or proposed solutions with the internal Lead/Senior artists and Art Directors.

Asset Production

· Generate a broad range of specified characters for various uses to our proscribed asset generation pipeline and task brief. Where directed, research and identify real world reference content within the briefed task or supplied mood board or concept art.
· Create and texture high quality 3D models with an appropriate construction methodology, texture sizes, UV usage and required shader pass elements – including sculpting in ZB, modelling in 3DSMax and texturing in Photoshop, along with other related pipeline character tools.
· Ensure these assets are always within technical, creative and engine specifications and are created to the given timescale and task brief.
· Ideally demonstrate knowledge and ability to contribute to skinning and rigging tasks; using internal tools and techniques as specified by engine constraints for body human body, facial and bipedal and quadrupedal creatures.
· Establish that you are working to the very best of your ability and that you continually contribute to the overall success of the projects.

Production Tracking and Reporting

· Work along with production management to accurately log data and progress all daily bugs and include estimated timeframe for completion across all team members.
· Be proactive in problem solving and highlighting task related workflow issues within bug tasks and via internal communications.
· Work to the priorities as set by the Project Producer and internal management.

Interpersonal

· A great team-player: Self-motivated with fantastic, amenable and cogent communication skills
· Able to accurately follow common goals and time-driven set tasks whilst working under own initiative.
· Effective time management skills to deliver the brief to deadlines without sacrificing quality.
· Skilled at feeding back on task progress to Leads and line managers
· Ability to collaborate effectively with other related team disciplines as required

Highly desirable:

5+ years relevant development experience
