tutorial advice
show user profile  stevey2shoes
Hi
Has anyone used these tutorials?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq62WXj86gY

As some people know, im still a real beginner, and as much as I keep going back to the various tutorials recommended on here, once something is covered that I have issue with, i shut down and write off the rest of the tutorial out of frustration.
I've looked at the few of this series that are available on YouTube and he seems to go slow enough for me, without being too slow. (there are other lynda tutorials from another chap who I've also learned a bit about super sprays from)
just wondered if anyone else has experience with these as id need to subscribe for the rest
Steve

Not watched the specific tutorial you linked, but lynda.com are very good for just getting an understanding of various softwares and their features. They are by no means "pro" tutorials, by which I mean they literally just teach you how to use the software, as opposed to more specific tips and tricks that an experienced specialist might divulge.

If you're not comfortable with 3ds max and wish to learn more about the software, I would recommend Lynda.com, if you're happy with your knowledge base but would prefer tutoring from an experienced artist instead, then I'd take a gander at the Gnomon workshop dvd's or something of the like.

Edit
My opinion is that:

Lynda.com = "I want to learn the software so I can apply my own artistic ability"

Gnomon workshops = "I'm pretty pro with the software, but would love to learn what the best are doing, and how that can help me even more"

"I flew over Egypt once"

Hi thanks for the advice. I bit the bullet, and have signed up to lynda tutorials.
They are just my speed, and are explaining real basic stuff. I'm watching one after another, each one i understand, but just don't remember.
all good stuff highly recommend them
thanks again
Steve
