New here

Whats up guys. Very new here. But not to vBulletin style (obv who isnt?). I finally got around to tinkering with blender. I have nearly no background graphic design anything. I did make comics as a kid with my friends but nothing past high school art. Now I have immediately jumped in character modeling. Using this 2010 tutorial [video][/video]

I have the basic mesh body down and am onto the face. skipped over the clothing detail. I am about 2 days into this. I am progressing nicely I like to think… If this is a horrible idea plz let me know. I have also begun attempts at character sketchs in gimp but it’s taking me a second to get the interface. Are there any golden rules to blender that are floating around?
