I dont want to just limit myself to just specific area either so this is where im running in to problems trying to put together a plan [/quote:3d3775bca1]
First thing you need to do is decide which you want to do… 3D modelling or animation. They are very different disciplines.
If you have no training in either, then get a copy of a 3D art package and start modelling and animating to get a feel for what you want to do. If you want to do a course you should get some grounding in all areas, but you will need to specialise in one as becoming an expert in one of them will take a lot of time.
