3D Character Artist


Character Art,
Amsterdam, Netherlands

With your artistic eye, you love to review, mentor and inspire external artists


Our 3D Character Artists form a small multi-national and goal-driven group who are by nature creative problem-solvers. The team has a thirst to create groundbreaking real-time characters and value coaching and giving feedback in order to achieve technical and artistic excellence. The team punches above their weight by working closely with a host of external partners, enabling the production of a large variety of content while retaining a tight-knit culture.


As a 3D Character Artist, your main tasks and responsibilities are:

  • Review externally produced character content on a daily basis and propose (novel) approaches to maintain and improve the overall quality of our characters;
  • Supervise, train and inspire a host of external partners;
  • Design and execute processes, conventions and techniques to maintain and improve our excellence as it relates to 3D character production for our studio.


We’d love to hear from you when you:

  • Are a Character Artist by trade and have an online portfolio to show your artistry;
  • Are strong in your communication and coaching skills and have the capability to address art design, art direction and artistic elements with your peers / students and external artists;
  • Enjoy solving 3D character production issues and/or inefficiencies;
  • Experience in the giving feedback on outsourced art is a plus;
  • We are open to senior and principal level candidates for this role.


If you think you’re up for the challenge, we’d love to hear from you! Be sure to submit your CV, Cover Letter and portfolio where you showcase your best and most recent work. We really prefer seeing images as opposed to videos and our focus is on (photo)realism rather than on stylized portfolios.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Wessel Haytink (Talent Acquisition) at recruitment@guerrilla-games.com.
