Well i am looking to buy a good Modelling Book and/or DVD. I think i'd prefer book but if a DVD is what i takes, so be it.

I am completely new, i've been toying for a long time but havent had the time to invest my full attention into the matter... But now i do.

I would prefer a Book that talked about Human Topology, Speficially in the facial region. But really anything that would guide me in a positive direction to teach me how to build proper loop structures ahead of time would be very helpful.

Also i would prefer a non-software specific buy, as what i am using currently is Modo (by Luxology), and after trying others, just by feel, that is my choice for the moment. And i doubt any of the bigger books are focusing on Modo just yet hehe.

So.. with all that said, any advice on a good book/dvd? I mean even if it is software-specific generally modelling is modelling, so it all works i spose. Also a more free modelling structure would be nice, that is to follow a model as you go style. That is my end goal, to kind of start and let what happends happen... all be it until i get good.. lol. i dunno :p


Obviously i'm new, so teach me oh wise modelers :)


Thanks!
