14k hits?! the interent never fails to amaze.

I agree with Dom, it makes sense to credit the tutorial in your youtube description, even if you made it your own in some way. You've done a great job, but whether intentional or not, it kinda looks like it's being passed off as your own design?

If I understand you, I think you missed what we were all saying. Don't link the tutorial in THIS thread, link the tutorial on your youtube page where everyone is congratulating you on your beautiful design.

I don't mean to be rude, I just think it's common courtesy to do when you showcase work. Credit where credit is due and all that. We know it's a simply maya tut, but your youtube followers don't.

tajmahal, a 3D model done with maya with music - YouTube

sorry but i just looked through the comments and you didn't mention simplymaya or the fact that it is a tutorial. I just think thats a bit weird.
...and i don't care that you don't care.
