What the Character Artist will do at BioWare:
A Character Artist at our BioWare studio will influence a new generation of character fidelity by utilizing their exceptional skills and working with the latest engine and tools. It's important for all characters in BioWare games to be emotionally engaging and immerse gamers into the worlds and stories that we create.
The Character Artist is driven to achieve high-quality believable characters. They are expected to assume ownership over any technical issues that arise on their project and drive them to resolution. This requires the artist to have the ability to work alongside character artists, rendering engineers, technical artists, technical animators, designers and concept artists. Candidates may come from either a Character Art or Technical Art background; however they must demonstrate a comfort level in working with both character art and technology.
Who You Are:
The rendering of a character is vital to the believability of our Characters. Creating visually stunning, immersive games is an art that takes a tremendous amount of skill and talent.
