Difference between Modeler and Model Artist
show user profile  S. Silard
Hey mates .

Just surfed on internet , and found subdivision of 3D artists .
I found "Modeler" and "Model Artist" . It's sounds me it's all the same , but it's seems it's not . So can someone tell me what's the difference ?

That's nothing important , I'm just interested .

Thanks .

It may mean the difference in generating a model from scratch using traditional methods, and a high poly count artist who uses mudbox, zbrush etc to make high detail models for norml mapping etc

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

In all seriousness, I've never heard the title"Model Artist" before... ever.

It might mean modeller within a specific pipeline whereas in other cases a generalist.. Some employers don`t know exactly what it is they`re looking for!

It just might be a term the advertiser/employer has made up or adopted. I wouldn't take it as a black and white official thing. Don't think too much into it

I'm with strat - recruitment staff as a general rule rarely understand the design world in the subtle way that people in the field do.

why the difference is obvious

A proper Model Arstit has a painful personal history where he was most likely abused in his childhood by technophobic parents forcing him into terrible acts such as going outside, visiting amusement parks or god forbid.. sports! None the less they have survived the trials of youth and now live in the basement or a shack of a relative, free to express their inner gift. They are extremely sensitive about the computer of their choice and consider Steve Jobs as their god and savior. Due to their fragile and innocent nature they are severely allergic to success of any kind because that is too mainstream and depressing for them, only after their own death are they comfortable with their work getting recognized.
