    Can anyone tell me whats the difference between an environment artist and a level designer? I know its probably a stupid question.

    Hi Duggan, a level designer develops and creates interesting areas for the player to explore. They will normally get a level to a blocked out stage.

    An environmental artist is a visual artist who puts the aestethics of the level on to the designers geometry. This can involve asset creation in another program like Maya or 3ds Max.

    For more information world of level design is a great resource:
