Who are Artists at Liquid Swords?
Artists at Liquid Swords are pioneers of visual storytelling.

How Technical Artists fit into the bigger picture
Technical Artists at Liquid Swords enable and supercharge game development and are attuned with Engineers and Artists.
They empower and support artists and optimize each volt of performance through competence and collaboration - tangibly this means modern game technology and digital content creation packages, and the people - workflows, pipelines, and quality of life tools
A liaison between two departments, yet a bedrock in itself, a Tech Artist collaborates to help developers craft beautiful and performant atmospheres of the game world through lighting, shading, and visual fidelity. Technical Artists provide a clear framework for art and asset pipelines
