Default Learning basics

Hi all!

I just joined the site and I'm quite new to working with 3D graphics and I was wondering what tutorials would be best to go through first?

Thanks

I'm currently following the one for the human form, and it seems to be straightforward enough, but I've also had a bit of practice from a book that came with my edition of Maya.

Try Kurt's Basic Human Form tutorial(as mentioned or Cartoon Dog tutorial - both free. If you're having trouble with those try Maya's tutorials under 'Help' - you should probably go with polygon modeling first.

if you are new and want to learn the basics, you SHOULD (this is mandatory, you really have no better option) start with the tutorials that come with Maya in the help menu

in the time it takes to search the internet to find tutorials to learn the basics you would have already learnt how to navigate around the workspace, know you're way around it, and learnt how to make a temple from polygons
