Lighting Artist

Lighting in video games, as with film, television, and theater, is necessary to establish an atmosphere within the game environment that is consistent with the time and place, as well as the emotional context. Lighting sets the mood for a showdown at high noon in New Austin or a deadly night siege in Raccoon City. 

Lead Lighting Artist

Lighting is an important element in the creation of a game’s look and feel. An environment is not complete without the mood that is set by shadowy dark corners or bright rays across a vast landscape. In an effort to provide levels that feel realistic and enhance the overall style of the game, studios require the artistic talent and discerning eye of lighting artists.

Technical Artist

Something of a hybrid between an artist and a programmer is the video game technical artist. This person works under the direction of the art director and technical art director, and is responsible for the systems and tools associated with creating and porting art assets.
