Well don`t feel like that - Just have fun with it.
There will always be a better person out there, but better dose not mean winner.
After doing 3D for 5 years at uni I found this was the best way to learn Maya. My skills doing these challenges has gotten better and better. Yes I have 3 medals now but I have entered a lot of challenges and every time it was for the fun of it not the winning. Everything I know for texturing has come from these challenges.
I like working to rules and deadlines - makes it feel like its a job or uni project.
Just get going and have some fun - and we`ll help you all the ways we can
Just think how much higher you`ll be able to reach with the help of a Goliath - David.
