Hire Freelance Texture Artists

Texture is an element of two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces of art and represents surface quality. Texture is used with other design elements which convey a variety of messages and emotions. Professionals in this domain use textures to add dimension to a piece to make it more interesting. Textures are used in graphic design to give extra detail to base models. For example, a painter depicting a rock would create illusions of surface qualities such as rough, hard or smooth through the use of different colors, lines and shapes. There are three varieties of texture – physical texture, visual texture, and hyper texture. Texture experts work in different industries like film and production studios, graphic design firms, advertising firms, web design companies, animation studios, and many others.

What does a Texture Artist do?

Texture artists paint surface textures on animated characters, props, or environments. They develop textures for digital media such as video games, movies, television and websites. 3D texture artists for hire overlay 2D or 3D textures onto a polygon mesh to create realistic 3D models.  They work with a number of textures such as fur, scales, mud and wrinkles. They may even invent their own textures using their imagination and creativity. They work on many software platforms and rendering spaces like 3D Paint, UV layout, Maya, Shaders, and Houdini. Texture artists add depth to their work by creating physical feel which resembles the actual texture of the required object. Their work on texture creates interest, emphasis, and expression to the object.
