As a Texture Artist, you will make an immersive world come alive by creating and applying textures that give depth and dimension to everything within it.
With a mix of observation, skill, and imagination, you add the details that define characters, objects, and environments. You take inspiration from reality to build believable materials, and adapt to new tools to push them to their full potential. You freely choose the methods that work best for you to create a finished look that fits the feel of the game and makes it memorable.
