Each of our characters hides a latent ability that manifests when they level up. Your work will hint at that in your character concepts and you will also give us the first look at what those massive, iconic boss reveals will look like once implemented. Your work will be featured to promote new content in conjunction with our voice team.

Your character concept art will guide the game development teams to achieve their creative and artistic goals. Your character concept examples will speak as your experience and resume. You’re an expert with shape design, silhouette form, function and structure including the use of color and composition. You will have an exceptional understanding of human and creature anatomy and you know how to stylize them to create compelling and memorable characters with powerful emotions and feelings.

You will have a deep passion for games, love movies and great stories, and understand how to take our characters to the next level. You will be a self-starter who gets the job done.
