Hey Friends!

Everyday if I browse the cgchannel 3d art, or the newtek board...there is at least ONE guy who write that he work with 3d progs now for 1 month...I'm sure U already seen postings like that!?

But I can't believe that, I remmember the time when I got my first 3D Program. I took days over days even to know HOW to make a simple patch Object.

But today, whats going on. Why are this newbies so fast? :(

For the last 4 Years I work realy hard with 3D Software, alot of hours every day (to get the best result).

And this newbies come post some genial 3D Heads, whatever.

So, know I wanna sak the community, how do YOU see this?
I'm sure some of the user here work with 3d progs. since many years.

thnx in advance. Cya.

I agree

3D is becoming more accessible.

Although still a very specialist area, a lot of people are getting their feet wet in our pool.

Well.. to be sure... when someone says they are new to Lightwave... (as I am... in 4th week)... it doesn't necessarily mean they are new to modeling in general. I myself have used Rhino / Max upto now... (will never go back to Max). Add to that that all it really takes is someone to find a *really* well written tutorial and follow it to come up with something in the end that they couldn't come up with before. Case and point would be this wip series I've done Here (;act=ST;f=1;t=3). I've never modeled a human in my life... but here is one now that was created on my machine. I truely can't take credit though as I followed the tutorial in the book Lightwave Applied 6.5/7.0. The other day I tried to free-form model another character and I couldn't do it. I'm at a stage where I would need the steps in front of me.... (at least with spline / patch modeling). My plan right now is find a good Sub D character Tut.. and just do it over and over again.... making modifications... and making my own over and over again... till I am completly comfortable. But someone could ask me to model a screwdriver and I'd be lost. ;)
Surely someone who has been using an app for years is more versatile / quicker with there skills. A lot carries over from other apps though..... I've never been one for modeling with Max.. but Rendering is usually something I can nail in any app with a little playing around. Oh what I wouldn't give to be a good modeler though.. :D
