Architect entire worlds.

Environment artist is one of the most dynamic jobs in games now.  It's a rapidly evolving area of the tech that is capitalizing on procedural tools such as Houdini & Substance Designer. There is always something to build since they create everything non-character. The game industry itself is growing at an annual rate of 16%. This trend is only set to increase with the advent of cloud gaming, VR / AR technologies and virtual sets.
