Coming from a traditional drawing and graphics background as well as classical animation, Dmitrij, discovered his interest in 3D (ZBrush in particular) 9 years ago, which he pursued on his own. For the majority of his professional career he has worked as a medical illustrator, but never abandoned his love for portraying people, only transferring it to a new medium. He has worked on all kinds of projects; models for print, animation, commercials, movies and games. He currently works as a Lead Character Artist at Digital Dimension.
Dmitrij’s dedication is amazing. He really cares about the students and provides thorough feedbacks and explanations.
Dmitrij Leppee offers a state-of-the-art course and it was beyond my expectations. He’s also a brilliant artist and teacher, really generous indeed. The feedbacks were extremely helpful with a lot of detailed explanations. Although I was not able to follow all the lessons so far because of my work, I intend to continue studying with the videos and materials Dmitrij’s prepared to us. I can say that I’ve learnt a lot by now and I’m sure I’ll find much more precious knowledge through this learning path. Congrats Dmitrij and CGMA on this outstanding course!
I like how Dmitrij also allowed for casual conversations during Q&A if no immediate questions were at hand. Makes it felt welcoming and not as rigid. He talked about his own personal interests as well and fields he is trying to improve on himself. Mark of a great artist!
