ABOUT THE ROLE:
As a Foliage Artist, you will play a vital role in crafting and refining in-game foliage assets, working within the specified timeframe and budget. Your skills will help translate 2D concepts into accurate, vibrant 3D models that capture the concept's spirit and technical details.

WHAT YOU'LL DO:
- Create high-quality 3D foliage assets, ensuring proper integration while considering technical and gameplay constraints.
- Analyse, plan, and collect references for the assets while adapting to the project's style.
- Work with Technical Artists to define and implement procedural rules, bringing our Open World to life.
- Actively seek feedback from Lead Artist, and Art Director to continuously improve and maintain high-quality standards.
WHAT YOU'LL BRING:
- A portfolio demonstrating strong artistic abilities, specifically highlighting nature and vegetation assets.
- Proficiency in SpeedTree, robust 3D software (3D Studio Max, Blender, etc.), and Photoshop.
- Strong understanding of artistic composition, form, colour theory, light, and detail.
- Solid knowledge of PBR workflow and shader techniques.
- Ability to work effectively in a team setting, under deadlines and time constraints.
