As part of the character team you will work with concept artists, animators, designers and engineers to create characters, creatures and weapons in the Diablo universe.

  • Collaborate with artists, designers and engineers to bring visually compelling characters to life
  • Ensure that character art supports gameplay and performance
  • Help develop character art best practices and mentor others as needed

Job Requirements:

  • Proficiency with Substance Designer, Substance Painter, and Marvelous Designer
  • Knowledge of medieval weapon and armor design
  • AAA PC or console experience as a 3D character artist
  • Demonstrated proficiency with current techniques and PBR workflows
  • Self-motivated, humble, excellent communications skills, and a legendary team-player attitude
  • Passion for all things games, Blizzard, and Daiblo!
  • Basic understanding of rigging, animation, and deformation
  • Some game development experience, specifically creating real time characters and items using Maya, ZBrush and Photoshop (or equivalent 3D and 2D programs)
  • Exceptional understanding of human/creature anatomy, color theory, values, form, shape language and silhouette
  • An aesthetic eye for costuming and visual design
  • Solid foundation in the traditional arts, including but not limited to figure drawing, illustration and conceptual design
