I am an absolute beginner in graphics and 3d modeling. What How-to books, sites, etc. would you recommend for the graphically hopeless, for both general technique and application-specific info. I have downloaded Sketchup, Bryce, Blender, GIMP, POV-ray and Wings 3d. I figured,"What the hell... They're free, so I'll try 'em all".
Reading the long Delphi topic inspired me to attempt a plug I have been considering, and I've always wanted to learn this stuff.
