  • Able to paint special VFX textures from scratch and match an established style
  • Proficiency with 3D graphics, particle systems, physics and shaders

Desired Skills :

  • 2+ years industry experience
  • Working knowledge of rendering engines and experience designing VFX shaders
  • Solid game design awareness and an exceptional game design-oriented collaborator
