I have been using max for a while, but have only done non-organic work, and my heart is with characters and animation. I really want to start character modelling/rigging/animating.
Not entirely realistic characters, more of a pixar, cartoon character thing for a start.

The thing is I can find NO free material that helps me, tutorials online that I have found are all bad and lack depth.

Can some of you push me in the right direction???

Any help is appreciated :)
