I am a NEWBIE to maya and i need help along my path of creating a skeleton character. What i have so far is just NURB cylinders and spheres that pretty much make up his basic joints and head, arms, legs, etc. you can see a printshot here:
The problem is..since i'm new i have no idea what i'm doing :( so i don't know what the next step is. How do i sew up all these parts to make one complete body? And if that's not the next step, what is? After that, i need to add detail to the face and then paint him. And then finally after that, i need to animate him so his head bobbles and mouth moves as if he's speaking.
any help on what i need to do next would be much appreciated...
