3D Clothing - Modeling, sculpting, texturing, baking
We are looking for an artist who is highly proficient in 3D modeling, sculpting, texturing and baking and has a good eye for aesthetics and detail. This will be a long-term opportunity for the artists we find most suitable.
The task will be creating finely detailed 3D models of clothing based on concepts provided by us. Clothing items include tops, skirts, shorts, trousers and other casual wear. Utmost attention to details like wrinkles, folds, stitching, seams and textures is an absolute must.
You will need to be adept at:
ZBrush - digital sculpting experience in ZBrush is mandatory.
Maya (or alternatives) - Maya is the preferred 3D package for scenes in our workflow. You must be skilled in modeling both organic and hard-surface forms, and well aware of constraints like topology and polygon limits.
Mudbox (or alternatives) - 3D texture painting knowledge is a must for some of our clothing items (eg: jeans).
Unwrapping - We need the UV shells to be tightly and efficiently packed in the UV space to fit our texture resolution.
Baking - Strong lighting skills and the ability to bake it out as maps. VRay/mental ray preferred, but you are free to use alternatives as long as the generated maps are of high quality and are visually pleasing. The style we're focusing on is realism.
Photoshop - Fine tune the textures and bakes, arrange them and separate design elements as layers.
The final deliverables will include 3D models (.FBX files) and textures (neatly layered TIFF files). The product we receive must be ready to rig.
Please apply if you think you're eligible and be sure to start the first line of your application with the word "Unicorn" so we can be sure you read the requirements.
Looking forward to examples of 3D clothing items you have created or links to your portfolio! If we like what we see, you may be required to do a test job to help us evaluate your skill better. We are passionate towards work and great to work with, so we would also be considering your attitude, determination and dedication towards work as we want someone working with us long-term as part of the team.
Once selected, the artist will be required to accept and sign our NDA.
Attached is a preview of the kind of work we do and the detail we strive for.
Okay this has been a long read but here is a defined list of what we can offer to you and what we expect.
-Respectful and relaxed work environment with flexible hours. Set your own hours and define your own workload. We will give you just as much as you want to do.
-Long term oppurtunity. If you want to commit, we will employ you and keep you by our side for years to come.
-Competitive pay. If you are what we are looking for, we will comphensate generously.
-Professional yet laid back attitude. We joke around a lot but when it comes to work, you need to be able to take critism well, don't get emotional too fast have a little bit of a sense of humor. Don't hate the skype emoticons. We WILL be spamming you with kittens. That just comes with the work. Sorry.
-Go the extra mile. There are times we get really swamped. Be prepared for those rare moments. Less complaining the better.
-Your attitude is just as important as your skill level.
Good luck and thanks!
