Default Rigging a model for presentation

Hi guys,

I am new to rigging in maya and i really can't find any links to a good simple skeleton tutorial. I have modeled this creature in Zbrush and i am soooooo desperate to rig it for a good pose for my portfolio.

Can anyone please send me a link to a FREE (if possible) video tutorial.

Many thanks

p.s the is finished now.lol

wow! wasn't expecting this kind of reptile!! nice combination n creativity. grt job, man!
abt ur question, u can check out the Full Body IK example of a quadruped in Maya. i have come across many sites but i am not being able to remember any of them :headbang: :angery: however i do remember this site "http://www.rigging101.com/" which is dedicated to rigging only. or u can look at the process of rigging in other 3d softwares and do the same in Maya too (which is not recommended, BTW )
