2D Artist

The 2D artist must have excellent skills in graphic editors and drawing programs like Photoshop. They often do pixel art, sprites, icons, textures for texture mapping and other types of 2D graphics. The 2D artist doesn’t necessarily have to know a lot about game design, but it does of course help to be interested and have good knowledge about games. There are also still quite a few games made today that uses a 2D game engine. In these games the role of the 2D artist will become more central. The main graphics for mobile games, online flash/java games and games for handhelds like the GBA are made by 2D Artists.
