Default Modeling SuperHeroes!

I'm trying to model two superheroes and then animate a fight between them.

Does anyone know where to find tutorials that might be helpful? Like a site that might have character reference sheets and things like that?

Thanks!

Tutorials on....Modelling?, Animation? This site has some.

As for character sheets. If your designing your own characters, it would be better to make you own refs.

Yeah, I guess I really didn't phrase that very well.

For modeling I was looking to see if anyone knew of good character modeling tutorials beyond what is on this site. And I thought someone might know of a site that has movie or comic book character reference sheets also.

And for animation, I was wondering if anyone knew of tutorials specifically for characters that are fighting and interacting with collision detections and such.

Maybe most of this I should just figure out as I practice with what is already available on this site.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

for fight animations with 2 or more characters there is not normally collision detection. Its all Key framed. Unless you are talking about games. In that case everything would be a different ball of wax.

So on that note I'm just wandering are you talking about a animation ? or a game ?
