    Youtube. I started out by reverse engineering some professional models I bought online. I didn't realize at the time how important quality texture maps are to rendering.

    If I can, I would recommend photography and art theory books, too. As far as software, Lynda.com has some good videos.

    Then if you have VRay for 3dsMax this is a great channel:
