Course overview Course overview
Learn to sculpt the human face
During this course, students will learn what makes the face look as it does—the underlying structures of the skull, muscles, fat tissue, and other structures such as glands which create and affect the forms of the face. Without a basemesh, but starting from scratch to get a better understanding of all the layers laid on top of each other. Once that knowledge is established, we will go deeper into what makes the portrait alive and tell a story.

The more you know, the better.
Bringing out the best in talent
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 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!
Dmitrij's dedication is amazing. He really cares about the students and provides thorough feedbacks and explanations
I attended a 3D school before but through this course I learned so much more technical stuff, it really helped that we had such an experienced instructor!
