Starting from zero you should check this guy out.
He covers all the bases for beginners and will get you modeling pretty quickly.
Things to avoid, getting carried away. Start small and work your way up and try to
stay focused on one thing at a time. There are many facets to modeling and it is tempting
to try learning them all at once.
If you take Andrew Prices donut tutorial, don't upload the donut.
Tutorials are for learning. If I see a donut or an anvil in your store I am going to think you are still a rookie.
Hope this helps,
3d modeling is next level art. It's so amazing to be able to "draw" a picture that can be viewed from every angle.
So satisfying to be able to recreate a real world object that once rendered can't be distinguished from the real thing.
I started in 2011 with google sketchup then moved up to Blender about four years ago. So I've been at this over ten years and I'm still learning new things all the time and it just gets better and more fun.
