Does anyone have any good tutorials?

Think I need something faster paced.

Are you still learning blender basics or trying to get into general modeling?

Blender basics tbh.

I'm having a hard time settling on a style.

Style?
What my models should look like.  

Cartoony, a little more realistic, etc.

Just copy something.

Using a game or two as a reference is a great way to get a running start. That way you're building skills and producing your own work, but not also functioning as a concept artist.

I do a mix of both. Most of the time a do Stylized. But sometimes I go a bit more realistic.

My last model.



The one before that



and the one before that.



The most important thing is just to get to it. You'll develop a style over time. I'm still working on mine.

Thanks, They are okay. I don't really feel like I'm good at this. But you'll move on from cubes fast enough.

Sometimes I feel the sculpts that get the most reaction are really the easiest. like that brick on the base of the clicker. It's just a texture. It' real detail, but I used a stock zbrush texture to make it. It's sorta strange, but something stylized get's a lot less reaction even though it's harder. As every shape you make has to be intentional. Very few happy accidents.

honestly the biggest thing you could do is to go for more realism first and get proportions, anatomy, or how things look in general in real life down 100% or close to.  Then you can start embellishing on proportions or things that you might like. This should naturally start developing your own style.

I know quite a few people i went to school with who tried to go stylish too early and everything they made just looked off.  Cause even in stylized art things still need to look and read like the thing your trying to make.
