Frequently Asked Questions

What is 2D game art?

Two-dimensional is related to creating flat objects and characters. 2D artists work with height and width, while in 3D art, they also add depth. It's easy to create and cheaper than creating three-dimensional worlds. 2D art involves a variety of styles that are still quite popular among game development studios: flat art, monochromatic art, paper cut, pixel art, low poly, and many others. You may see a lot of 2D platformers, puzzles, and adventure games.

How do I hire an artist for video games?

To find a perfect 2D game artist for hire, you should be quite specific in your requirements. Draft a list of art styles, tools, and expertise your potential employee needs to know and work with. You can start your search with platforms like Behance, Upwork, or Fiverr. However, this may be a lengthy process as the market supply is quite big. To save time and costs on hiring in-house experts, try outsourcing or outstaffing game artists.

What does a video game artist do?

2D artists for hire are responsible for creating visuals for the game: characters, objects, surrounding worlds, etc. They're skilled with computer graphic tools and know the basics of composition, light, and shadows. Game artists usually draw by hand quite well and are familiar with such complex structures as human and animal anatomy, animation, architecture, etc.
