If you're one of the many people looking forward to Guild Wars 2
, seeing the words "hiring" and "ArenaNet
" in the same sentence probably made you skip everything else in that sentence. And it's true: The team at ArenaNet is looking to expand. Unfortunately for some, the position being filled is that of a character artist
rather than a Guild Wars 2
enthusiast. But if you're a character artist by trade, it's an excellent opportunity.
Prospective applicants aren't being asked for a resume. Instead, they're being given two pieces of character concept art. Would-be artists are then tasked with creating a high-resolution mesh for the outfit with very clearly defined space and size limitations. Presumably, applicants who demonstrate skill with the more technical side of things will be asked for more information. If all this sounds like something you're more than capable of, read up on the fine details on the official posting
and start modeling!
