Art Internship - 2021
Jagex is looking for an ambitious individual to join our friendly and dynamic Art Teams on a Summer internship.
At Old School we are very passionate about the retro look, so we seek those who share the same passion as us! Are you an aspiring artist who cherishes the minimalist approach to art? Do you enjoy immersing yourself in solving simple design? Do you want to throw photorealism aside and dive into a world of fantasy and endless possibilities? Well look no further - the Old School Art team might be the perfect place for you!
We are looking for Concept Artists and 3D Generalists, individuals who are not afraid of going against the high-end technological stream and can express their craft and skillsets through simplicity. We are looking for those who have a strong understanding of art fundamentals and the ability to translate that into a visual language, fitting the world of Old School RuneScape.
You will get an opportunity to learn all aspects of the Art Pipeline on Old School RuneScape - from concept art to environment, characters to animations. We will show you how we create things from initial ideas to the finished products published in- game. See how we operate with other teams and disciplines to maintain alignment and progress towards our goals. As a bonus, you will also get a glimpse of how other projects are developing across the organisation! You will receive valuable mentorship from our hugely talented and experienced Artists.
This is an exciting opportunity for a student with ambition and initiative to join a fast-paced online games studio and help us to achieve our ambitious goals for 2021.
