Job Title Principal Character Artist Wanted - FPS Games
Skills Required Character Artist,Lead Artist
Job Description Our Client leading developer of FPS games is looking for a Principal Character Artist to become the central figure of their small character team which include freelancers and external partners. They want someone who has the drive to push their character art to the next level, and who understands that great video game character art starts but does not end with amazing sculpture. This person should be a strong team player, someone who can inspire their colleagues to greater heights – actively mentoring and training instead of simply leading by example.

  • You have expert-level understanding of game character creation from start to finish, and have the confidence and ambition to beat the best of what’s out there. Specifically:
  • You understand surfacing and lighting, both from an artistic and technical POV, and know how to create truly believable materials.
  • You have an appreciation of rigging and articulation, and can build characters for perfect deformation.
  • You’re a master of anatomy, in terms of both form and motion.
  • You are a world class sculptor, who can work in any style – real or expressive, hard-surface or organic.
  • You have experience with (and enjoy) tutoring more junior colleagues.
  • You know how to, and have experience of working with freelancers and subcontractors.
  • You have a solid understanding of game design principles, and an appreciation of how character art decisions can affect both playability and design production.
  • You’re high on initiative, have great written and verbal communication skills, and know how to manage your time effectively.
