Well, I think this tutorial is the most complex, but at the same time the first step to create custom models, I hope you enjoy it.
Can this be done without 3ds Max? I don't have a couple of grand to spend.
In reply to rbloir:
Yes, of course it can be done, the problem is that I don't know if it can be done exactly like 3dmax.Also 3dmax 2020 and 2021 have their student version (free for three years)
