  • Prepare visual documents that capture asset progress for reviews with our brand partners at Lucasfilm.

Requirements & Skills:

  • 4+ years of production experience as an environment artist; mobile development experience a major plus.
  • Experience working within the Unity game engine.
  • Expertise working with modeling and texturing programs such as Maya/3DS Max, Photoshop, and 3dCoat.
