Default New to Maya

Hi guys, I'm just starting with maya and I'm going thru some free tutorials on the web, some for maya some not for maya and trying to apply the techniques with maya tools.

I also wanted to try the tutorials from simplymaya, (a member of other forum recomended), so I got the robot tutorial and went trhu it. I learned tons out of that tutorial, I enjoyed the modeling part as well as the texturing and rigging. I hated the UV's part thought. :headbang: .
I did a quick walk cycle with my finished, (well almost finished I still want to work some more on the textures), to check how the rigging worked for me, I also improvised a little in the rigging, (like I added curves controls to all the main controls and did some key mapping of my own).
I'm glad that I found this tutorials and I think that I'm ready to take into another tutorial/project. Plus I get to start fooling with animation with my brand new rigged robot .
Thank you guys.

Here are some of the free tutorials I've made along with the little walk cycle I was talking about.

Hi guys,

This time I didn't do any tutorials but instead I wanted to practice some basic animation, render passes and compositing and I came up with this, it's short and simple but I encountered some problems that let me learn a few thing I didn't know.
Thank you guys.
Oh the rig is a free rig I found,I made the other stuff, along with the animation.
