I don't know anything about 3d

I want to make low-poly 3d models, mostly just cute girls, as a hobby.

Where should I get started, what program should I use, and what are some good resources or tutorials?
>>
learn 2d first

I do know 2d pretty well, I'm assuming you just mean drawing, right?

I don't know if posting my work is relevant, but if it comes to making texture or drafting characters, I don't think it will be an issue for me.

I am mostly concerned with the program I need to learn, and the process/workflow. It's unfamiliar to me.

Download the student version of Maya. You can bullshit student credentials; nobody even checks.
then just watch youtube tutorials. There are heaps of them.
>>

Do I just look up "low poly tutorial Maya" on youtube or somethin'?
>>
Get Blender. It's free and good. (If you want to go with any other mainstream program that's fine too)

>>532701
It doesn't need to be specifically for low poly; just find beginner tutorials for your program.

Do not go with Blender. Blender is hot trash.
>>
>>532697
Go with 3ds max or Maya, I would recommend trying both to see which one you like.

Like the guy said above, don't go with blender.

I would say go with a combo of blender and makehuman. This is a work in progress, but those are the tools I used to get this far.

Try Blender. Blender hate is a very old meme which Blender has long surpassed. Max and Maya really don't compare to it anymore. It took it a very long time, but its constant updates and improvements have now simply made it the better tool. Especially for low poly.
But give all the major programs a try, at this point it's basically a preference of interface.
>>
>>532749
Blender is great unless you need to buy special effect plugins. Most people don't, especially low poly modelers. Some people like the interface; some don't

>>532697
OP, if you don't like Blender for whatever reason, feel free to try something different, but it's capable of doing anything you want. People here hate other programs; it's like console wars on /v/.
