Job Description

Based in the heart of Leamington Spa, Pixel Toys have spent almost a decade pushing the capabilities of mobile and VR gaming. We have developed multiple award-winning titles, including: Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade and Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realm War. We’re now excited to be exclusively working on a new game, unlike ANYTHING we’ve done previously!

As a forward thinking and innovative studio we are always looking for new technologies and techniques to develop and use in our games and make them even more engaging experiences for our customers.

We are excited to continue to grow our team and are always on the lookout for highly talented and motivated individuals, who are passionate about gaming and excited to join us on our ambitious journey!

The Role

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior 3D Character Artist to join us in creating wonderful, entertaining games with high-end graphics. As one of the key members of the team you will be responsible for working with our creative leads and the art team to take the vision for our games from concept to completion.

Here, you will collaborate closely with Project Lead Artists to establish art benchmarks, meticulously craft and document an appropriate style for your assigned art specialism, and ensure its consistent application throughout production. You will gain the opportunity to steer projects from their initial specifications to final in-game implementation, ensuring that every step adheres to rigorous industry standards.

Staying ahead of industry trends, you’ll infuse your work with the latest techniques, resulting in top-tier assets that blend quality with performance.

Your keen eye for optimization will shine as you meticulously fine-tune art assets for use within our game engine (Unity), taking special care to balance performance and memory demands. On top of this you’ll also dabble in concept artwork during pre-production phases, adding an extra layer of innovation to our projects.

About You

You will have a standout portfolio that showcases your top-notch 3D and 2D skills, honing in on captivating character creations and a deep grasp of anatomy, evidencing a comprehensive command of Autodesk Maya (or similar 3D tools) and Photoshop. You will also be familiar with the opportunities and challenges of the gaming sector and be comfortable to mentor junior colleagues and peers, spreading your expertise.

Plus, if you’re Unity-savvy, that’s the (advantageous) cherry on top.
