    Yep
    Small projects tons of small projects to understand every feature
    then go onto something else then combine it all together make something really neat....
    For now more learning and experimentation until I get burned out then not
    do anything with blender for a month then come running back to it again
    I do keep on second guessing myself,like Blender isn't the standard unlike 3D Max,
    Maya or Lightwave but I can apply my knowledge if I have to learn though...
    Well Blender is free,very capable(cloth,liquids,great poly modeling,pretty much everything you want with it's own quarks)
    and isn't that hard to learn so I must be doing something right..

    Yep, compared to some of the screen shots I've seen of old 3Dstudio interfaces, Blender is amazing.

    Also, yeah, free is better than $800-$1500

    I thought I wanted to get Lightwave 9 (around $1000), I stumbled cross the Blender book & CD set at the bookshop and brought it home... I'm waaaaay too stupid to deal with all that! lol!

    I'm not a numbers & mesh person, I'm visual / hands on that's why I like sculpting and painting. I'm slowly working on getting the hang of Digital painting with a Wacom Intuos tablet. I've read that Zbrush or Mudbox is more like something I can get my head around to use, no numbers or meshes just pushing and pulling "virtual clay". But at $700 I had better really like it! That's what keeps me from just giving it whirl. I've been playing with Bryce 6 doing environments but not enough to say I really "know" anything. I made a 3D model in Bryce of the freestanding terraium design I want to build from melamine and glass. I just need a house with enough room to build it, at least I can look at a empty model of it on the computer and imagine it full of plants and frogs!

    Try it for free
    Like 30 days seriously....
    Swords it isn'
    t above you it just is a total pain to learn and when your over the curve(like 4 months) then your cherry
    I still miss the awesome shader network Maya had I could make a photorealistic texture with a few clicks.
    In Blender it is totally cryptic to me but I'm understanding it...

    Ah... I miss rhino. 90% input of commands was in text form.

    Origin

    Line(0,0,0 0,15,0)

    Line(0,15,0 15,15,0)

    Line(15,15,0 15,0,0)

    Line(15,0,0 0,0,0)

    SelectAll

    ExtrudeSrf 15

    There! a cube in rhino! Well, you could make cubes with the mouse easy with just one button, but a lot of rhino was typing because the snap function sucks, plus it helped for measuring.
