I've suddenly taken interest in 3d modeling and animation again... I come from an artistic background... went to a arts high school, then studied graphic design in college, and ended up working as a sys admin?!?!
So I picked up "Introducing Maya 6" and "Learning Maya 6 Foundation". Is there any other books or DVDs/Sites you'd recomend? As great as these 2 books are, I find that the second one, is just step by step with barely to no explanation as to why your doing things...
Sure, I can now do most of the stuff in the books, but, if I was to try to do something based off a sketch, I'm not sure I'd know where to start.
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself.
