selfish, books are pretty good, but they focus on learning the tools, not specific modeling, rigging, etc.

thanks so much for this wonderful list of tutorials, and i have to say, i am going to try and get through most of them
i made a program that crashed once. i put it in my resume and sent it to microsoft.

Made my day!

Thanks! I'm in th middle of my fifth (out of six) week of class and I've already gone thru two models that aren't very good. I wish I was back on campus, I love the online classes, but I miss the fellowship of the computer labs. This is a great resource!

hey ppl

I dnt mean to be rude, and I truly appreciate the effort placed into the listing of so many tutorials for us beginners, but considering how good these forums are (and how professional etc) - I rly think someone should go over the links, cause there is a large number that doesn't work...

On a more positive note, thanx for all the effort put into this... Otherwise it wud be a long extensive task to find even half of these tutorials.
