Definitely not for beginners

  • Feb 18, 2010
I was hoping for a quick introduction to 3D modeling, but I found myself lost almost as soon as this fast-moving book began. If you're already on speaking terms with modo or Maya, then you'll probably get a lot out of this book. Otherwise, best to wait for "modo for Dummies."
