Re: Self Introduction



Daniel,
Hi.  Inkscape is a pretty powerful app, so I'd check it out first.  It also is the subject of a great number of screencasts over at http://screencasters.heathenx.org/ so that might be a good learning resource.

The other big one, I guess, is Blender, which is insanely powerful and diverse, great for 3d modeling and a lot more.  There is a great "Noob to Pro" series of WikiBooks available from wikipedia.org that you might want to check out.

GIMP is the other big one.  Don't know of any books but if you know Photoshop you know the GIMP.  There are many books on the subject.  I hear some guy named Klaatu did a fair little intro to the program for the show Linux Reality at http://media.libsyn.com/media/linuxreality/linuxreality080.ogg

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Hey everyone,

I'm currently a student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, IN starting my junior year. I'm really interested in developing some skills in computer graphics and i figured that this would be a helpful community to join that also has some really intresting projects to boot.

I'm really new to this (all the art i've done is on paper), but computer graphics seems like an intresting medium to work in.

I'd love some tips to get started or things to try to do to learn the basics. I have access to any book you may want to tell me about so references would also be welcome (and suggested).

Thanks,

Dan
