Modeling Basics - Tutorial for a Noob

I am pretty new to Blender, I’ve learned most of the shortcuts, and I know how to create, extrude, manipulate items, but i’d like to know how to divide faces and split edges and such, to finetune stuff.
I used the Wikipedia Noob to Pro tutorial and i made a VERY SIMPLE person

but i dont know how to add more faces/vertices/edges right to define it more. Also I thought it’s be fun to make a Zoid (a machine animal thingeh, mostly simple geometric shapes)

If anyone had any begginer tutorials for modeling i would be so appreciative, sorry for bugging everyone with a noob question but i wants to learn :3 Thanks

hey! thats better than i can do. if any one has an answer, I will love it hear it also

If you’re interested in modeling and animating people, this is the best beginning tutorial I know of.

Also check out the selected modeling threads in the sticky at the top of the modeling forum.
Welcome to BlenderArtists :smiley:

You might also want to check past issues of Blenderart magazine.

Most if not all issues have modeling tutorials of one kind or another. If you run into any problems with any of the tutorials, you can either ask here in the forums or you can contact me directly.

:wink: I have something of a soft spot for helping newbies, so don’t be shy about asking for help.

in my sig there is the link of an updated Video tutorial list I made. Check it out. It will get you up and running in no time.
