Who are Lighting Artists at Liquid Swords
Lighting Artists at Liquid Swords invoke emotion and sell compelling and dramatic scenarios.
Through deft manipulation of light rigs, the Lighting Artist conveys tension, emotion, ambience, mood, intent, and character within our contemporary open world game.
How Lighting Artist fits into the bigger picture
Implementing creative systems of light across night/day cycles, owning the lighting and placement of sources and a healthy blend of visual and technical expertise.
Lighting Artists collaborate with a wide cast of game developers. In-house at Liquid Swords we’re fortunate to be seniors in our craft across concept art, technical art, graphics programming, environment art, and design.
These will be your core collaborators but ultimately we are game developers first and foremost. Unreal Engine 5 is our weapon of choice, and the potential it has for your craft is something we appreciate, and expect to be a stunning part of the game.
