perhaps you could be a little more specific of what kind of scene you wish to make?

is it an environment,just objects, characters?
otherwise go to (
they have some free beginners tutorials.

good luck...

Which version of LightWave did you buy?

There's plenty of tutorials for LW 7 on NewTek's site and one's for [8] are slowly being introduced. Also you'll do well if you consider buying Dan Ablan's Inside LightWave book. There is one for ver. 7 and a recently released one for [8]. That book alone will get you to grips with using LightWave.
