Hi there! i’ m Leandro Benigno, I’m half a Brazilian half Portuguese 3D artist, digital sculptor and illustrator, who has passion in doing the most weird and bizarre stuff.
When I was 6 or 7 years old I remember going to the video store and seeing the “Akira” movie poster and asking my mom to rent it. Maybe she still regrets that a lot! After what I had seen from “Akira”, I could never be the same person again. From that moment on, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. The details, characters, the city, the story, the graphics and the action, it all grabbed me pretty hard. I was a sensitive kid with so much information on my mind, someone who was always looking for graphic ways to express myself with the most amounts of details possible. I decided to start studying 3d and character design in 2010. Using Zbrush and seeing all the possibilities it could give me, simply drove me crazy. Adding small details in my characters is something that helps telling where they come from, what they have been through their lives and what they represent in that world, and this is something I ***769;m very fond of. Even if you are creating just a piece of rock, it has to have its own history, and the spectator has to notice that. During my career I have had some works which I am proud of, like working for Iron Studios, a Brazilian marvel licensed company that produces Marvel action figures. I worked on the X-men and Captain America 2 The Winter Soldier projects, sculpting Juggernaut and Falcon characters. Also I have worked for 2 years as product designer for P&G,
