trying to learn 3d Graphics

hello i’m new to 3d graphic design. i have no background or formal training in any graphic design field. i’ve been trying to play around with blender to get a feel of what i need to learn. my conclusion basicly is that i need to start from the very very beginning. i’ve tried to use some of the tutorials in this forum, but get confused halfway through the tutorial. i would really appreciate it if someone can point me in the right direction. i can draw with a pen or pencil in my hand but manipulating 3d images seems to be a bit more difficult.

thanx in advance

I recommend starting with BSoD/Introduction to Character Animation
