Thanks both for your responses. I see that I'm a little fish who is considering jumping into a VERY big pond. redface.gif I still think I'll tinker with some Unreal stuff and some Autodesk student editions to test them out. Thank you to all contributors for your time. smile.gif

Here are some websites that professional 3D artists hang out and they can help you if you have any questions. They even have tutorials which are awesome.

cghub <--- Great website to get inspiration from. When you find yourself finding nothing to model, go here and you will find your inspiration. biggrin.gif
DigitalTutors <--- Hands down the best website on the internet for tutorials. This will get you up to speed with everything you need to know.
ZbrushCentral <--- This website is specifically for 3D Characters/Animals, basically anything organic. A lot of professional 3D artists post here. They are cool guys!
CGTalk <--- Best website to see the work of other professional 3D Artists in the industry. You will see people who work for big companies such as Pixar and DreamWorks post there so learn from them because they provide helpful tips.
3DTotal <--- Another great website for tutorials and other cool stuff.

That's all I can remember for now and that should help you get started with pretty much anything. Good luck on your journey! biggrin.gif

Alright! Thanks! biggrin.gif

What is your opinion of Unreal's development kit? Is it a good place to start? How is the learning curve on it? How does it compare to Autodesk products?

That would be a great place to start with level design and 3d modeling. UDK and 3Ds max are similar so you will find yourself comfortable using them at the same time. When I started using UDK, there were very few tutorials on the internet but now you can find millions of tutorials about pretty much anything. Here are some other websites that are dedicated to game engines and they have tutorials for Cry Engine and some other unpopular engines as well.

Eat3D <-- Has great UDK tutorials and basically for anything else such as animation, rigging, texturing, lighting, skinning, posing etc.
CG.Tutsplus <--- Has awesome free tutorials.
TheGnomonWorkshop <---All the tutorials here are made by professional 3D artists that work for big companies. These tutorials are geared towards users who are expert at 3D and just need tips to make them even greater artists. I suggest you buy these tutorials after a few years when you find yourself comfortable with pretty much anything.
3DMotive <---- Has great tutorials for UDK!
Polycount <-- Great place to post your work if you want others to critique it whether it is level design or 3d models. Go there if you need to post something that you need help with.

Maybe you should take a look at Blender, just because it's open source and free. It was used to create Bick Buck Bunny and others.
