It is with great pleasure that I present to you this special guest tutorial from Lee Salvemini!
If you’re new to Blender, welcome! Lee Salvemini is kind of a big deal. He worked on Sintel, Elephants dream and spent two years on Star Wars video game titles for LucasArts.

I very rarely promote stuff on this site (especially other people’s stuff), so I’m hoping you won’t reach for your pitchforks when I mention that Lee’s actually selling some training DVDs.

With experience on Sintel, Elephants Dream and Lucas Arts, he’s certainly knows his stuff.
The usual price of Volume I & II is $120, but Lee has been nice enough to offer Blender Guru readers a 25% discount. Bringing the total price for both volumes down to $90.
NOTE: The discount is only available on the above link.
He’s also created an impressive trailer that’s worth watching:
