The Job

Kitten Cup Studio is looking for an experienced environment artist to model a variety of locations into 3D assets for our upcoming game Pekoe. This is a remote work-for-hire contract open to anyone, with a preference for Ontario residents.

This position is compensated at $25CAD/h. The contract is for 800 hours, but may be extended depending on your experience and skill to include other work. Negotiation of rate is also possible depending on experience level and turnaround time. There is a two month probation period.
