I've decided that I want to start learning Blender 3D modeling software. Does anyone have any good sites to help me learn. Just looking around for tutorials, etc. I love that Blender is free but man it's a lot to learn!

I took a few close-up photographs of some nasty rusty, flaked metal surfaces and they came out pretty good. Some of the textures with blue paint came out really good. In total, I uploaded about 75 texture stock images today!

Make Seamless Grass Texture from a Photo with Spiral Graphic's Genetica

Genetica by Spiral Graphics is a standalone texture editor with rendering and mapping capabilities that is quite powerful after a little bit of a learning curve. It utilizes node methods to allow you to apply effects, transforms,filters, and much more to your source image or texture. The software also comes with many textures and ways to generate procedural textures, but for my first guide with Genetica, let's use it to make a seamless texture from a photograph of some grass. Not too hard, but often hard to make look good.
