Art / Layout / Illustration

Modern computer- and video games as well as an increasing number of online games impress us with highly detailed graphics, so a variety of specialists are involved in their realization. These can be 2D / 3D Artists, Animators, Concept Artists, Vector Illustrators, Screen Designers, Interface Designers and more.

Requirements of Game Artist Jobs

There are a number of different requirements for an artist. A 3D Artist should have advanced knowledge of common 3D graphic software like 3D Studio Max, Maya, Cinema4D, Sketchup or 7Brush. Drawing skills with pen and paper are important too, but not to the same degree. For a Concept Artist it is essential to have a good understanding of perception for anatomy and perspective. It allows them to illustrate and see in which direction the upcoming game is evolving.

General requirements

Regardless of the specialization, there are general requirements for all Game Artists. These include drawing skills, a deep understanding of colors, shapes and lighting. In this context, teamwork and communication skills are indispensable for the disclosure of the work to other departments in the company. The ability to work skillfully with Photoshop is common for people in the graphics department. For the most part, a degree in art or a similar graduation is required for an application.

Your application

Your upcoming application should consist of expressive work samples. Past work on any projects or mods is a huge advantage. Also, it is worthwhile to publish your work on a website like Deviantart to gain experience and advice on how to improve your skills.
