The most important thing to remember about 3-D modeling is not to limit oneself. Experiment with different methods and tools. The mind is an excellent tool, but unfortunately it loves habits. Its tendency is to run in grooves, especially when it finds something it enjoys. Like a broken record player, it will keep playing the same song over and over again unless it is jogged out of its routine. You can see this with some people who have strong likes and dislikes. They are often very narrow-minded and have difficulty thinking out of the box.
