it´s a good start. I personally don´t like nurbs so very much, but hey, why not start with irrational things? I also learned maya on my own. after 10 months with this software I thought about quitting my old job to have even more time for learning. so I did. you will have a lot of fun with maya, I promise!

Great start teasider!

I really like your model so far. I think some details in the body would add to your alien, but already he has a lot of character.

I have also heard that nurbs are difficult to learn. I gave up after a couple of weeks and moved onto polygon modelling, which seems to make more sense to me.

I wish I could quit my job so I could focus on Maya.... chance would be fine thing! Oh well.

Keep up the good work teasider!
