Daniel Enrique De Leon is a passionate 3D Artist with a formal background in Biology: Clinical Emergency Medicine as well as classical education in Fine Art – with a focus in Digital Art & Visual Communication. As a cross-disciplinary artist with extensive experience in 3D Printing & 3D Modeling for prototypes, high-end collectibles, props and set design, as well as film visual effects, and video games, Daniel has been fortunate to work with a wide array of top-tier clients and brands including Disney, LucasFilm, Jurassic World, Star Wars, Marvel, Pixomondo, Dropbox, Sight & Sound Theaters, PDP, and many others. Daniel lives and works in the greater Los Angeles area, and in addition to 3D modeling / 3D Printing specialties, he is actively pursing his first love for meaningful storytelling by currently writing, directing, storyboarding/previsualizing and 3D modeling assets & environments for his first, ambitious short film.
Daniel is an amazing sculptor. His ability to render realistic textures and surfaces is combined with his artistry for bold, dynamic lines of action that breathe life and movement into his subjects.
Daniel sculpted this swell Ogo in ZBrush and 3D-Printed him as a wonderfully kind and unique gift. Wow! Daniel captured Ogo's elusive shapes and attitude perfectly --well done, sir!
In reference to Daniel's MakerBot Replicator 2 3D Printed Jurassic World inspired Velociraptor: This is the best MakerBot project I have ever seen, let alone held! So congratulations!
If you want to know how to sculpt and prep for 3D Printing Daniel is an artist you want to learn from. His passion for 3D Printing is contagious. Don't miss this opportunity to sit with him.
Daniel Enrique De Leon is one of those unique individuals that bring artistic talent, smarts and the rare gift of patients to do a job the right way. When it comes to 3D printing... It takes patients and experimentation to create a decent print. Daniel has proven to me that you can get not just good prints, but excellent print results no matter what brand or make of 3D printer you have. You just need to learn the tool in front of you and then don’t be afraid push it past its expected limits.
