Within animation and VFX, the role of a texture artist is to digitally apply surface properties to objects in a scene, often making it resemble real life. This can include recreating skin, hair or fur and objects in many different materials. A texture artist might work closely alongside digital modellers, character designers, lighting artists and background artists to ensure everything within a scene fits together to create a full picture. The role requires skills in 3D animation and good knowledge of associated software.
