Sting, perhaps you could start using wings3D or Gmax.
Those programs are far, far too complex for me ot understand.
Those Halcyon Days...
nope, you just need to take some time for it, that "DoGa" is something I tried myself, its not actually modelling, wings3D is pretty easy to understand, Gmax is just like wings3D, search the internet for help. Wings3D got a forun if im right.
I have spent time with both programs, before I even knew about DoGa. My mind refuses to understand it.
You may want to try SketchUp. It's probably more powerful than the program you're using and won't explode your brain like every other modeling program ever.
(Incidentally, my avatar is an overpaint of a model I made in SketcUp. It's plenty powerful as long as you don't try to make organic things.)
And here's some of my own recent works:

Quick paints caused by #art's suggestions. One was an octopus riding a motorcycle with a boomerang, next was a flying cyborg bear with missles, and finally was a wizzard with a staff that shoots lighting and shockwaves.
Here's something small Im working now. Just trying to get a picture of my hero in a Mutants and Mastermind campaign I'm playing in.
Any tips before I go any further with it? To put it in context he's generating a shield.
Oh wow. I also didn't realize the right hand is facing the wrong way. So aside from that give me your input.

Perhaps spread his legs a bit, also maybe straighten his left arm so his posture seems more stable and firm
he has two left hands? The thumbs aren't placed correctly.
Yeah thats what I said :P. I had just noticed it. I'll post an update when I'm done then
his legs look like they're turned in a bit too much, kinda like he's about to pee himself
I'm short and misanthropic. I'll bite your nipples off.
One side-effect of my desktop being down is that I spend more time on my laptop... and 3DS Max on which it is installed.

I retooled some older design sketches to make myself feel better about having almost zero non-Outsider work from the last 10 years. I don't usually mess with old stuff, because it's really dangerous. As you can see.

Neat to see your non-Outsider work. I think of these, Isis is my favorite. Beautifully done.
Good stuff there! A little variety always helps keep you from burning out.

Oh my god the Jettsons... Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah that means I love you. (Melts into a puddle of nostalgia)

Nice Judy there, Arioch. I'll get into my Jetsons redesigns when my speedpaint itch wears off, probably.
Hey guys, i have a question to ask of you, im writing a paper on Photoshop, and i am trying to show that it's more than just an image manipulation tool, and i was wondering if i could use some of your works, but those that were done using custom brushes heavily to show the possibilities of the program if used properly.I would use 2-3 images maximum and would like to have your approval of using them.I will list the credit to the author with the image.Not sure which ones i will use, when i decide i will ask the authors specifically if they allow their use.
A random girl for the random art thread
Haven't spammed much lately, but I'm happy to see this thread is still going and filled with a lot of good work!
Working on a BATTLE TECH RUSH
Now starting with one of the most popular ones.
the hips and upper legs need to be thinned down a bit, but otherwise spot on!
Sketch of my DnD character, gonna re-do this because it's a bit sloppy and I did it on 8.5x11 and forgot to leave room for his feet! D'oh
Kind of wondering, is this perhaps my first art that deserves a own thread? still working on it as a whole
Well i have decided which ones to use(if allowed)
One from Chrome showing how custom brushes can speed up the process while still giving a good result
One from Talros to just show how anything can be made in a quick time
And one from Balance to show that it's possible to make them look a bit more like traditional paintings
Now if it's okay with the three of you i would like to use these in the paper
All cool with me, I doubt Chrome or Talros would have any objections to some extra exposure. Might be a while before you'd hear from Talros though, he's a bit more sporatic.
I might suggest you flip my image horizontally if you can--after I posted that I decided I go with a mirrored version, works better flow-wise imo. That's just me being nitpicky. XD Gaaagh I really need to do another enviroment soon.
BTW I forgot to say as much earlier, but I very much approve of your paper topic.
So sick of people who can't read anything past the name of the program. Eyes need to be opened!
It sure is quiet around here!
So here is an ogre. Still feel like I need more painting tutorials.
One hour of mindless fun
It's not nytti you &%!*¤@ !!

And with a bit more polishing...
I really need to install my tablet on this new PC. Some epic drawings here folks well done
Not sure if I should move my 3D efforts to the model thread down in Tanis or not. They could certainly use more spaceships with textures.
Anyway, one of the several spaceships that, until recently, existed only as figments of my imagination and lines on paper. Well, they're still figments of the imagination, but at least they're a little closer to solid when rendered in 3D.
random karate doodle with a couple of fails
That's pretty cool Fish Of Doom, his posture is very well done. His right knee looks a bit off though, but that could just be me hehe
I'm bored as of late waiting for responds on a job application, it's also too hot to paint warhammer stuff so I did it virtually.. Who in their right mind sits inside doodling in full hot summer weather.
I tried to go for a very low quality model, (ala WoW), the texture is pretty high quality though (1024*1024) this will eventually be scaled down to half of that. Lots of errors as I'm still an amateur in modelling and texturing.
Feel free to brutally C&C hehe

what brush setting are you using to do your roughs?
I suggest a harder setting since it will be easier on the eyes to tell what's wrong
and also, smudge can easily get it up to blurriness where you want
it's fine to have a completely sharp drawing
since you can smooth it down easily
but not so much to have a completely blurry rough
