Just following the tutor. Nothing special. I know this is not how it works. I know I have to imagine new things and play with blender. But don’t have enough time. Just focusing upon completing the course. Great tutor by the way.
Perfectly fine especially in the early stages just to follow the lessons, practicing the new basic functions.
On the time issues I think most learn and remember, if they do a little every day, rather than rush through then spend weeks before looking at it again.
