How long did you work in your respective modelling software before you started complex models?

I’m learning Maya, and I’m just curious, how long did it take you all to start diverting away from the baby-step learning process and start branching out on your own, making more complex models like buildings, structures, characters, etc?

I’m not sure there’s really a specific time frame for this but moreso a skill frame. You move when you’re comfortable with what you can do now and when you want to move on to harder stuff. Are you ready?
