Dragon Head Tutorial
Well this is my first work in maya.
I'm thankfull for every tutorial you guys did they helped me a lot
and teached me everything i need to know for now
after watching 3 gb of video material

Expecially Kurt did a very good job.
you explained very well and i love your comments

And thanks to everyone else who made tutorials like mike and izzi and so on

The Dragonhead was done after the dragon head tutorial
The body was done similar to the cartoondogturorial (i mean the technicues (nurbs-poly-subdiv..))
UV map like starfighter.
Texture with photoshop (did me take a long time thought)
Blendshapes like lip sync by kurt and rigging by mike
bones like rigging by mike( i think it was mike, I'm talking about the catroon guy with black hair)

Oh and even if its not my native language, the videos on simplymaya are much better than the german free videos i saw
I uesed more than 70 points, but it was a very fair trade,

well thats it took me like three weeks watching and practice. (not fully done yet but kinda close to)

Looks great... keep it up... If you can play with the lighting a bit more

WHY do you KEEEP deleting my posts???

Is it THAT "touchy" or something??

I am SIMPLY looking for a place that I can purchase or if it may even be posted, somewhere, online that I can reference.

It's a SIMPLE question really. Is this STILL available or not???

Is it THAT hard to RE "Yes!" or "No!" ...something monosyllabic will do. Really!

Thank you, for the THIRD time, in advance. -EB

EDIT: Oh look!! ^^^^^All of a sudden....
