www.traptcg.com is a good free video tutorial site for 3d and some 2d programs. also I think that the site might be putting up Blender tutorials. (blender is a free 3d package).

Hi Nate!
I haven't listed tutorials because there are so many and because they are constantly changing. I hear ya on Blender,... its 5 or so on the list.

Cheers.

Free 2D Tool

Excellent compilation and very useful list of 3D/2D software. The options available is faboulous for a self learner like me.

Guess 'Inkscape' ( http://www.inkscape.org ) is a wonderful vector graphics 2D tool and it has been missed out. In fact it is my favourite 2D tool along with GIMP.

Thanks

Well, though it isn't free, Milkshape 3D is an EXCELLENT program. It costs $30 which, for something as versatile as it is, is quite inexpensive. Obviously it's not a real option if you use every penny of your budget, but if you can spare the money, it is an extremely easy pick-up-and-learn program.

I always learn a lot by searching for "vfx" and "animation" on http://www.search.twitter.com

The chatter is full of useful links and information. Also people always post cool vfx breakdowns and clips. I almost always find at least few great sites to bookmark every time I search.

A while ago I started a podcast dedicated to answering questions from those trying to get into the industry. I'm an environment artist at BioWare, and I interview many other BioWare employees as well as guests from other studios.

http://gim.acanaday.com

The episodes so far:

1 - Audio Design

2 - Tech Art
3 - Gaining Experience
4 - Design 101
5 - Environment Art

Hope everyone finds them useful! We will be having a character art and portfolio episode coming up in the next few weeks.

Milkshape 3d

Another free modeling software: milkshape 3d - http://chumbalum.swissquake.ch/
My first steps were achieved using that. Most importantly, it learned me to think in 3d - it is too primitive to think instead of you. But it can make you loathe everything in 3d, i am afraid.
