Default Cartoon Dog

Well, I downloaded cartoon dog tutorial.

I folowed the instructions.

I added NURBS primitives, plane (but my square isn't dark as in tutorial).

And when I try to add the dog and see it (but I did everything
that the guy from tutorial said) I can't see it.

I don't know what to do.

Can anyone help me?

what you mean you cant see it. the dog picture.. you have to press 6. if you square isnt dark then your not in shaded view. you need to press 5.
are you using mac or windows? maybe the buttons are different in each platforms.

First - Thanks for the help.
Second - I use Windows.
Third - Well...I have one more question:
When I press 5, yeah, my square becomes dark, but then I see all those words (Maya, Alias...).
So, can someone help meabout this, I can't solve this problem.

Youve got the PLE Version of maya from Alias's website and in a work you cant get rid of the Watermark as its part of the licence agreement for the .

I used it for ages prior to getting my student licence and trust me you eventually get used to it and eventually almose see straight past it!
