I am new to the community. I have been learning Blender since December. Mostly learning through experience and not following a guided tutorial.
Since I understand some of the basics of the interface and the application, I would like to really understand and develop models more efficiently. Learning from someone with experience would help immensely. I am having trouble finding a community or tutorial with the vast amounts of directions available.
I am aware of CGCookie. Can anyone vouch for the program? Do alternatives exist that are less than $20 a month? I am an undergraduate, so saving money would be preferable. However, if CGCookie is the best resource I can probably manage the monthly payment.
