I want to teach myself 3d modeling and am looking for the easiest package to learn that is closest to Adobe Illustrator.
I want to teach myself 3d modeling. I'm proficient in Adobe Illustrator and traditional drawing however I would like to add that z axis to my work.
I've tried Z Brush, Cinema 4d, Strata, Poser and Sketchup. All of these work sort of well, but there comes this learning curve that is beyond my means. I've got a book for Cinema 4d but its written in so much odd jargon that it loses me
I've considered giving Maya and 3ds Max a try however for some reason they frighten me.
Lastly, please GOD do know I'm not trying to do a shameless plug for my artwork but only trying to give an example, I'm trying to make this (link
) into, say, something like Pixar's look. Also, I'm limited to books in my area so online tutorials are a plus.
So does anyone have any ideas?
