I've been using Blender 2.79 beta ever since summer of 2018. When newer versions came, I tried each one of them. Turn out I was lagging behind in both modeling and rendering. Took me one year to get around with UI and a lot of things in 2.8 - 2.82
I've been looking at tutorials from Blender Guru, CG Cookie, CG Matters, and other experienced Blender users. By putting things together that I learned so pretty far.
I rendered it in Eevee because it's a lot of faster.
