What do you want to make with it?
Well, firstly for general interest - I used to study art years ago, and I love fantasy art but have never been any good with airbrushes
a lot of artists seem to work in CGI now
Second, I sometimes do some CAD contract work for various companies. I don't like the results that CAD packages give - they're very rough and 'blocky' compared to what you see in movies and computer games. I'ld like to produce something that will look good in a presentation - possibly including some animations, a nice background, maybe some people? Just realistic colours would be a start! It's surprising how much customers judge you on a presentation...

Yeah, I hadn't quite realised the difference
- the packages I use tend to work in 2D, then you extrude the shapes and make it 3D
Thanks for all the links! I haven't got round to checking them all out yet
I quite like Blender, but difficult to get the hang of, things keep being wobbly
Maya looks quite promising...
