Technical Artists help Artists and Designers get their content into the game with the least pain possible, and help Engineers and Artists communicate fluidly. If you are an Artist or Designer and you have a problem with your content or your tools, the Lead Technical Artist is the first person you should go to for help. If you’re already working with another Technical Artist then certainly continue to do so, but new issues should always go to the Lead, for the quickest solution. If you are an Engineer designing a new content feature, it’s a good idea to solicit feedback from the Lead Technical Artist, for how it will fit into the content pipeline.
Technical Artists serve as both an advocate for the Art department as well as the bridge between Art and Engineering.
