Buy one or both of these books:

Maya Character Animation by Jaejin Choi

Happy reading and good luck!

Hi Wizard,

you might want to take a look at McKinley's tutorials ( , especially his low-poly modeling and texturing tutorials. He mentions almost all the tools you'll ever need for poly modeling.

I would definitely get that book Maya Character Animation, from what I've seen, it looks very in depth.

Also Maya 4.5 Savvy looks pretty darn good too...
