Artists located Anywhere.
Posted by Beyond Skyrim on
We have an exciting role for 3D artists looking to get some experience to fill out their portfolio.
Creating 3D game assets from concepts or directly from request/instruction. You may be tasked with creating anything from small clutter items to creatures to armors, even large tilesets – based on your available time and ambition. Do the full asset production pipeline from initial boolean primitives all the way to finished in game asset.
You will be working in 3D Studio Max or Blender to create your objects then working with texturing software such as Quixel Suite or Substance Painter/Designer to create assets using a full asset creation pipeline with DSN (non-PBR) texture output.
Beyond Skyrim is, put simply, a series of interlinked, fan-made unofficial expansion packs for TES V: Skyrim which will eventually allow players to visit every corner of Tamriel, the fictional continent on which the Elder Scrolls games are set. Much of the appeal of this series lies in the deep and fascinating backstory of their universe, which is full of stories about the eight other countries beyond the borders of Skyrim. Many of these have never been featured in a single-player Elder Scrolls game since TES I: Arena. Our goal is to change all that. When Beyond Skyrim is completed, if you talk to the Khajiit merchants outside Markarth and get curious about their homeland of Elsweyr, you will actually be able to hike south across Cyrodiil and visit the place. Or, for that matter, visit the deserts of Hammerfell or the ash wastes of Morrowind.
This requires modding on a huge scale, with a separate dedicated team working on each country. Landscapes need to be shaped, cities need to be built, scripts need to be programmed, and hundreds of lines of dialogue and in-game books need to be written. Each country will feature new architecture, a different culture, and of course a whole host of different dungeons to explore, activities and quests to complete, and weapons, armor and items to loot, buy and sell. The objective is to make each country a brand new experience for even the most jaded of Skyrim players. It may sound ambitious, but we are making steady progress towards our goals.
