Please ensure you provide a portfolio along with your application.Key Responsibilities
As a Senior Environment Artist on the project, you will be involved in many aspects of environment construction, working in coordination with Design and Concept Art to deliver an immersive and visually impressive world. You will be asked to help guide this process. Your substantial experience will highlight and avoid potential pitfalls early and also reveal opportunities for efficiency and increased quality.
You will be tasked with creating levels for a new exciting IP that will involve everything from modelling and material creation, to level construction and dressing. Working closely with the wider development team, you will work within set time constraints and hit the quality benchmark expected of the project. Identifying opportunities for stronger output and even more effective use of time will be required. You will also implement feedback as appropriate and in a manner that provides a good example to the rest of the team.
Additionally, and where possible, providing support and coaching to your fellow artists would be expected of a Senior Environment Artist. This will be constructive and respectful to help improve the effectiveness of the Environment Art team.
Working diligently, whilst displaying proficiency and competence, is extremely important for the team. Leading by example will be highly valuable and somewhat expected of an experienced Senior Environment Artist.
