The Concept of 3D Modeling
3D modeling is the process of connecting vertices with lines and surfaces to create solid objects. Unlike clay modeling or bronze modeling, digital modeling does not naturally give objects the appearance of texture instead the objects will appear to have smooth surfaces. Realism is thus achieved by creating a surface on to which a texture can be applied. The ability to create a proper surface for 3D modeling is achieved through practice. The surface in 3D modeling is called a mesh. Creating a proper mesh is probably the only skill that really matters for a beginner. The basic tools of mesh creating should be the primary concern for beginner modelers.
