So cool! You max guys are incredible. Always the best models. I've been playing with the 60 day eval of Lightwave, and it's pretty cool, but I'd never be able to model anthing like this. Thank god for Poser and Daz or 3D art would be out of my reach.
Oh I have tried to get on in Blender more than once, since it's free it seemed like the obvious choice. But that was waaaay too complicated for me. I couldn't even follow the tutorials out there for it without getting lost in the interface. I downloaded the trial of 3dsmax 2013 I think it was, and was able to pull out some primitive shapes and stuff, and was just getting to like it when my trial expired! Can't afford that software for real, so that dream is down the drain. My favorite modeling software so far is still Hexagon, it's so easy to use, and it's one of the only ones I was able to make anything with, until I found this eval version of Lightwave. I'm liking Lightwave at the moment, as it's easy to use and seems to be really powerful for when I do get better at this stuff.
