Need help on stepping into the world of animating


I have always wanted to become a 3d model/animator, though I did not get too far when I went to college with it due to financial reasons. I barely scratched the surface when I finally got into the part of the program that touched actual animation. Now I am more motivated than ever to finally begin on my own. I just need help on finding the proper resources and references as far as how to get started. As far as programs, I have Maya and ZBrush. I just need to find tutorials on how to get started on educating myself to learn these programs well enough to start practicing, thus eventually taking on projects, which will then lead to coming up with a portfolio, and eventually with all the time and effort, hopefully lead into some sort of career. So I come here to ask you guys where I can begin this long journey to become an 3d animator/modeler. Any websites that have helped any of you self-taught animators, any books, anything to get me going. I pretty much know close to nothing on how to use these programs. But I do have the passion and drive necessary to begin this, I just need a little guidance.

Thanks in advance
