Every time im reading it i get this (..WOW is it that simple..) experience, still after about 3 years of tutorial hunting and c4d prob solving.
If i just had had this book 3 years ago, i would have leaped over a ton of those -where should this go, what happens if i use this, and so on.
Now to the book, its named (THE ARTISTS PROJECT SOURCE BOOK) by Ann Powers
This book is all about developing skills at a firm and stable pace, so try it out and search the net.
This is not a commercial but a recomendation, and sorry for my english whriting skills, need improvement.Have i said it yet.. good book.
