What does a 2D Marketing Artist do?

Game artists create art for one or more types of games and help create a game’s visual elements including character, vehicle, surface textures, and clothing. They create compelling and emotionally impactful artwork that fits and enhances the game theme’s established style and branding and push creative projects from the concept through development and into final execution. They collaborate with a team to execute large and small projects with the same enthusiasm and maintain existing products while providing assets for marketing purposes.

Game artists use computer software programs to create the animation, characters, environments, and user interfaces that make up the game. They combine classical art training with computer and graphic design using robust design and drawing principles to create characters and backgrounds related to the game’s subject. They must handle texture, animation, modeling, and rendering to create on-screen world and populations and use their artistic training to create visually appealing backgrounds and graphics. Game developers need a minimum two-year degree in video game art and fluency in design software.
