Contract 2D Artist/Illustrator

Tantalus is looking for an enthusiastic 2D artist/illustrator to create assets for our newest IP, a mobile game currently in development. We're looking for a versatile artist who is able to illustrate in multiple styles, particularly styles similar to those found in classic children's storybooks (but not cartoonish). We need a large number of environmental assets created, including some characters. A small number of these 2D assets will also be animated.

We also have a need for some 3D assets, so an artist also able to model in Maya would be particularly valuable.

Experience in the game industry is a bonus, but we're willing to look at any candidate with the right skillset, and we can teach you the rest as we go.

This contract would be for a minimum of three months, with the potential to extend beyond this timeframe. We need somebody who can work on the premises with our team. We're looking for somebody with enthusiasm and creativity who can work closely with our designer to create an original game with strong visual appeal. This game would be a fantastic opportunity to showcase your artistic talents.
