Can I become a 3D environment artist i.e. just make 3D environment that includes mountain, trees, oceans, some building and no human or living creature… and work in gaming studio like Rockstar games, Activision, Ubisoft, etc and Movie studios like marvel, warner bros, red chillies, etc is that permissible in our Islam..?? if not that then how can I earn money as I just have a degree in Animation and VFX and have skills like drawing and nothing else. Would I be a transgressor? If I am not making anything haram like nudes, idols, etc rather just creating 3D model of tress, mountains and nature and no living being..??

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the most Merciful.
In the enquired job specifications, it is permissible to become an environment artist, provided it does not entail doing anything impermissible. However, it is advisable not to work for a gaming studio as games often entail evil and vice. Nevertheless, the income earned will be ḥalāl.
And Allah knows best
