Thumbs up

if you want to create characters you should use Zbrush or Mudbox too, necessarily. so choose 2 program, one basic like 3ds Max or Maya, other for hi poly sculpting. in my opinion digital tutors have all you need for learning

Start with the ones that ship with 3ds Max.
Don't use the geman language version of 3ds Max.

Lightning = Gewitter.
