Featured Artists:


David Lesperance
Environmental Artist

Dave got his start in 3D doing automotive 3D work in a High School in Michigan. He had his first real 3D job when he was 16, around the time he started using ZBrush 2.0. Because of the automotive work he got into 3ds max and eventually into games. He went to college in Chicago at the age of 18 and worked at several different development studios as an environment artist. While there he worked on games from PC to the Next Gen Consoles. Dave was contacted his senior year to work in California for a game development studio where he still works as a Cinematic artist.

He states, "I highly doubt my career would have excellerated at the rate that it did and continues to without ZBrush. It's the one tool that has impacted games and film the most. After its realase and sub release it changed, and continues to change and raise the expected quality of our industry's work. It's one of the most useful tools in my workbelt."
