Best Way to Learn 3DS Max

Recommended Posts

Hi, you guys. Basically, I need to know how to model stuff. I watched all of Bucky's tutorials on 3DS Max, and experimented with SuperFlow. I really had trouble with the one modeling tutorial on YouTube. I really don't care what method I use to learn, I just need to know how to model. I need like character, and stuff like that.

Thanks you guys :)
