We are looking for an remote artist for our mobile game design team. Art styles range from concept/painted styles to 'pop' vector. This position is a 30+ hours a week position at an hourly rate We need you available and online in our team backend between 9AM and 5PM EST (US) timezone. The position requires strong experience in mobile game art such as animation and typical 2d art workflow.
Ideally we are looking for an artist who can switch between vector and realistic art styles, but a strong candidate in only one area will be considered. Experience in 3D applications and rendering work flow a plus! Sometimes we may need to render pre-created 3D models into 2D sprites for animating in software.
We want an artist who is passionate about creating art and have their own ideas in parallel to the direction our staff will provide. For example, if we show you a mockup of a project, we would like your mind to instantly jump to ideas that you would like to see in that environment, and be a part of the creative process along side us. We do not want someone who will only follow a sprite list, and contribute nothing else. We are looking for a creative team member.
The correct candidate must be able to produce very high quality art for our clients, and quickly. The work you will be involved with are very fast turnaround mini-games, meaning from concept sketches to finished product is usually performed in 5 days. That means we need rapid concept sketches that are approved quickly, and iterative updates while the development team begin to include them in the project. While the games are small, the work is very fast paced, but our online team environments make communication and sharing very easy.
Finally, because we often find ourselves creating full mini-games from concept sketches and discussions, we commonly require skype/phone calls with the artist to explain the project when it begins. You must be able to understand English and communicate quickly without difficulty.
We will be filling these positions very quickly! To apply, please respond with portfolio links or examples of your work, and, what your hourly rates are. Again, we will be filling this position quickly, so please be ready to respond to email follow-ups.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
