  • Experience working with hair pipelines
  • Experience working with Marvellous Designer workflows

  • Passion for video games
  • Working knowledge of Substance Designer
  • Working knowledge of Python Scripting and examples of how this was used
  • Working experience with Houdini within a character pipeline
