New to CGCOOKIE/Blender
I am new here, just signed up 2 days ago. I hope this is the right place to ask my question.
My son (who is 14) and I just got involved into 3D printing. So we thought is would be really fun to start learning how to design our own things. So we came across Blender. We have been doing some tutorials on YouTube by someone named Blender Guru. Great videos. We have learned a lot and in his video he recommended CGCOOKIE. So, here we are.
My son, who is big time into anime wants to create his own characters. We have noticed there are different ways to go about this. Mesh and sculpting. My question is, my son and I are starting from bare bones (meaning we have no knowledge about 3D modeling), so would it be better to start learning sculpting to make the characters (like Goku) he wants or to learn mesh.
Please forgive me if I’m not using the right terminology for all of this. I told my son I would do this with him and I am just trying to finding a starting path for us because there seems to be multiple ways to do things in Blender.
Thank you all for your time.
