So I'm buying myself a Cintiq for my birthday. I'm really excited about all of the great 2d applications that I already have but I'm interested in learning 3d.
I've downloaded several trials over the years of programs like Maya, Lightwave, Blender etc but I ALWAYS seem to get frustrated about 10 minutes into it because the UI is so difficult to use.
What I'd like would be a 3D modeling program like http://www.ilovesketch.com/
or something that felt more like illustrator.
I'm mostly hoping someone can guide me to a program with a good (read better than most) UI that has a fairly easy learning curve. I'm not worried if I need to import into a different program for rendering later... I just want to get the images in my head into 3d space.
PS as per the rules... ART!
I made that in photoshop if anyone cares.
