I know absolutely nothing about 3D modeling and want to learn. where should I start?
model a bagel
>>621430how and using which software?
do you know what edges, faces and vertices are?
>>621431if you want a general 3D education, then just go Blender Guru series on YT and make ya donut with free software. If you just want to sculpt baddies with insane musculature like yr pic then just go straight to zbrush
>>621435didn't even notice that, thanks
>>621436How about texturing?
>>621442Substance painter isn't bad, you can use many sculpting applications with built in editors such as mudbox or Zbrush but it depends on what you're working with personally and to what detail you're aiming for. That being said, consider that materials and textures and separate things you need to learn about before reaching that road. Like anon said though, check the FAQ

>>621495Blender is not where you begin, it's where you end up after its community leads you failure after failure. With a donut in one hand and broken dreams in the other. Don't fall for the Blender cult.
>>621420https://vimeo.com/user904568Go to the last video and work your way to the top. This will get you acquainted with 3D concepts before choosing a program.
>>621535THISLynda's beginner tutorial is also pretty good, and even youtube has some decent content
>>621536Haha beautifully written. Just get Maya kids unless it's something it can't do specifically or you want a particular bespoke effect- they've either bought out or will buy the software sooner or later.
>>621536>With a donut in one hand and broken dreams in the other.kek that's amazing
