How do you learn/ how did people learn things in cg by themselves?
I'm asking this because right now I can't renew my cgcookie because paypal isn't accepted yet, but I also got curious about something in the process.
The question first came to me as I often hear that; from teachers and general long learners of cg, that they had
to learn things by themselves. If you have done that, what would you say helped you
figure everything out/ develop your skills? How did you fit the pieces together? How did you do it when resources weren't as many as they were now? I'm still going to be using places such as blenderguru and general youtube tutorials, but I was curious as i'd like to develop "intuition" in a sense, and how to figure out things that might not have tutorials yet. Thank you!
