A huge thank you to the admins and managers of this site, you are saints for lowly beings such as myself.

I've been 'umming and ahhing' for a long while about whether I should throw myself at the deep-end, and thanks to the excellent community and outright professional talent from some of you, I have been encouraged & inspired to really go for it. I have been in marketing and web design for the past few years, and this will be quite a jump for me. But if I can get even half as good as some of you in a year or 2 I'll be laughing. Trying the free tutorials has been a great toe-dipping session for me and for that I'm very thankful to Kurt, his words and demonstration are superb - but thanks to everyone else for their contributions - i look forward to 'shopping' and trying others' tutorials.

Also i noticed a publication by Mike - i presume you are one of the cheeses here, I must say well done also to you - a massive feat of effort and thoroughly defines passion for your work.

I look forward to speaking with you guys. Look after this forum, there aren't many like this around.

Many thanks for the warm welcome, I will no doubt show you my progress when I have made something of my own imagination.

I'm around 3/4 done on the Cartoon dog right now, and have also just dabbled for a week or two seeing what sense i could make of the program on my own with only help files and some basic Maya literature. So far it's all going great

For many like myself, learning without a website like this would make things infinately harder

Default people seeing the light

i found sm about a year ago,and sure ive spent my money on tutorials, but hey was it worth it! when i got maya i spent 200 on books but when i hit a problem it would take me hours to work it out...if only i had someone stood at my shoulder to say just do it this way, one tutorial well made is worth ten books, thanks to the fantastic apache helicopter tutorial i did about three months ago , i made my own. i work full time in the real world , and dont get a lot of time to get into the forums here as much as i would like but like you i realy appreciate the posting and sence of community, when i am good enough or confident enough i will give back what i can...promise.:p
