As part of the concept team, you’ll put stylus to Cintiq and create development and promotional art that represents the essence of a character, thematic, or gameplay to millions of players. You will use your artistic eye and experience with dynamic lighting, form, and color to tell concise and evocative stories. By working with a team of dedicated illustrators, visual designers, writers, animators, and game developers, you will help decide and illustrate each character’s unique place in our universe.

VALORANT is Riot’s take on a character-based tactical shooter (for more info on VALORANT click here ! ).

You will produce high quality promotional and visual development illustrations, with an excellent eye for light, color, composition, dynamic anatomy, high-fidelity rendering, storytelling and design.
