Knowledge of ZBrush and procedural geometry generation packages such as XFrog is desirable, as is knowledge of shader creation and techniques. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong artistic background, though not necessarily academic.

Please note that increasingly on the next generation projects, artists are specialising in particular areas of the process. This means that you may be very talented in ‘just’ one of the areas mentioned above. If this is the case, please don’t be put off applying – we would like to hear from you.

Technical Artist:

We are seeking to appoint a technical artist to sit in a role between the programmers and artists investigating and solving problems of an art-related nature as they arise and working on more technical areas of art production, special effects, scripts and cut scenes. The technical artist will also be charged with investigating new techniques and methods and how they can be applied to a production environment. This role requires previous experience of game environment technical issues such as portalling and level of detail and an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge of Maya/Max and Photoshop. It is desirable for applicants to have knowledge of normal, specular and bump mapping techniques, shaders, CG and other next gen techniques, experience in creating particle systems, special FX and scripts and knowledge of advanced lighting techniques such as global illumination, radiosity and ambient occlusion mapping, as well as a practical knowledge of MEL/MAX Script.
