Hi olivia,

I'm a novice too and I'm in complete sympathy.

Your helpers will want to know how much experience you have. Grahics, geometry, computers, etc. There's a lot of help out there. Select a level and grind away at it.

Specific questions get specific answeres...

Hi, uhh ohh olivia,

You're absolutely right: learning is hardddd!!

I have been using Blender for the last 4 weeks and at this point i'm not even close to where I'd expected to be after 4 weeks. My idea was: follow a lot of tutorials and within a few weeks you're a Blender "Pro".

But nothing's for free (except Blender!!) and if you want to go somewhere you have to invest some time in it.
That is what I learned from working with Blender: you're not going to get anywhere without dedicating some time and effort into it. This is the only way to get something done..!!

I don't have any links for you (apart from the links mentioned earlier), but I just want to advise you to invest your time into learning Blender because I think this is a very good way to learn 3D "art" the cheap way, and with a LOT of resources available.

At this moment I'm working my way through "the Essential Blender Guide" which I can recomend. Look for it at: http://www.blender3d.org/e-shop/

I hope you're going to enjoy working with Blender as much as I did (and still do!!!)

Good luck!
