Hi, I'm relatively new to 3ds max, I can do some basic things with it, but I'd like to take it as a carreer and eventually become an animator/modeler, I started reading the 3ds max bible but I'll appreciate if you guys can give me some advice about more books, tutorials etc. tnx!!

Have you done all the Autodesk tutorials that come with Max? After that, you should search for specific tutorials that are available on the internet. There are loads of good ones.

I'll be the first to say it: Joan of Arc. Required reading (and exercises) for an aspiring modeler. Personally, I also very much like this guy's modeling tutorial too.

Also, make sure you check out mrgrotey's sea turtle tutorials too. Those are great.

I bought the 3DS max bible when I was a beginner but it is useless. It's just the free max tutorials packaged into a book. You get more out of just reading the tutorials that show up when you hit F1.

as said before, google google google. the internet is full of good tutorials. To really make it and make it quickly, you should strive to understand the fundamental concepts that make 3D graphics behave in the way they do.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

@jareu yeah, you're right I started doing the quick start tutorial chapter proyect then I ended up finding more things in google than I did there, like the daylight system, how to create water, etc. but what you mean by fundamental concepts? like physics behind the 3d graphics and how the actual program works?
