Blender to Help Conceptualize Concepts!

I'd like to share some links that might come in handy for anyone who is interested in learning some basic 3D modeling, sculpting, and has wondered how/if blender can help in the conceptualization process. For example, here is a basic expression sheet that I came up with last afternoon:
It took roughly 3 hours total (not including the time it took to model and sculpt it.)
I'd also recommend it for architectural scenes which can be tedious to render by hand. It is also useful when creating background elements like vehicles, trees, streets, etc
Right off the bat, I would recommend basic youtube channels like Blender Guru, Blender Daily.
Here are a few tutorials that might help you right off the bat:
Basic Character Modeling:
Shape Keys to make a variety of expressions
a Tutorial on how to use Archimesh, a free Blender Plug-in that helps you visualize architectural elements:
How to draw traditionally (like you would in photoshop) in Blender. This one is one of my favorites:
Follow Sophie Jantak for a ton of useful Grease Pencil tips.
and last but not least, one more grease pencil tutorial that teaches you how to use the camera, lighting, and the grease pencil to come up with a variety of compositions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGRt24fYYWU
Jama Jurabaev, a renowned concept artists uses it frequently and had done work like this:
His tutorials cost a little but are well worth the investment
I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions!
