You are one of the pillars of the content creation pipeline of AAA games. Starting from concept art and/or a design document, you can translate the graphical style set by an art director into an AAA quality game content.
Just as a game developer, you have a thorough technical insight in the production pipeline. You are able to find a balance between productivity and the quality of the work you deliver. You master a broad range of 2D and 3D techniques, so you are able to select the perfect mix of skills and tools in function of any specific situation. Your virtual world is “real time”.
To you, a game engine is not an empty concept. The game engine is the “recipient” for all content produced by the game developer.A thorough knowledge of the working of a game engine and the implementation of game assets in a game engine is one of your key distinguishing factors.
