There is tutorials sticky thread right at the top of forums. You can find just about anything in there. You can also try this one to get you going. It runs down a list of almost everything you just mentioned.tutorials

Buy one or both of these books:

Maya Character Animation by Jaejin Choi
Learning Maya|Character Rigging and Animation by A|W

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...
