I used blender for nearly a year.I think my blender learning curve is not rising alot.I was thinking in myself how some guys in blenderartists managed to reach their level of professionalism in blender .
Sometimes, I follow some tutorials and sometimes i read the wiki manual,what is the best way?.a guy will tell me by experminting and testing all the tools,but how to memorize all the technical details of these tools.I think may be by drawing a concept then navigating in the manual for selecting the tool,reading its details then using it in the project,then returning again to the manual,reading about the next tool then using it in the next step and so on, using some techniques from tutorials.I can’t manage what is the best way.
My artistic capibalities are fine but the technical are not so good. one can model a good looking character but with bad topology and many unnecessary vertices.
What i mean of all these things,how to start from scratch and creat professional looking stills and animations all by myself without looking for any information and really fastly,
