I want to learn how to create them as well. I have 3D Studio Max, I am pretty sure you can create them in cinema 4D as well but I don't know how to do it. You could try finding someone who creates 3d model servers and ask them how they do it but I doubt you could get them to explain it to you in detail, it's always worth a shot though. Good luck!
You have to learn the basics first before you start thinking about creating server models. Just get yourself used to the tools and then think about bigger projects. At the moment you are trying to srpint before you walk.
Personally I would get used to the tools and just play about with it. I'm in work at the moment but I do have a link in the house to a really usefull tutorial. it has helped me understand the besics of cinema4d.
Drop me an e-mail mike[at]pixate.net] and I will forward on link to you when I get home.
You are jumping into it way to quickly. 3D is hard to get used to (at least I thought so) so get a book that will teach you how to use the tools and how to model correctly. After you learn that, then worry about creating server models.

Yep, some of the coolest things I've made were just from experimenting and playing around.
You definitely should get a book, or read some online tutorials to give you a jump start though. Learn the basics first, and then you can start worrying about specific images. Same goes for any design program.
