ARMATURE STUDIO in Austin, TX is seeking a Contract Environment Lighting Artist. This artist will work closely with the project’s Art Lead and Game Designer to implement the lighting and overall look of the environments, creating polished, atmospheric visuals for Armature’s latest project. The person in this role will specialize in crafting the final overall presentation of room assets, with a focus on lighting, fog, and color balance, while optimizing for both visual fidelity and performance. Experience with Unreal lighting for first person experiences is required. Lighting with Unreal on mobile platforms is heavily encouraged.
This is a six month contract with possibility of extension, 40 hours per week.
