Master's Student in Animation but new to Maya and in need of advice!
I'm studying a Master's degree in Animation and Design and have chosen to make the switch from using Lightwave, to using Maya.
My animation is a story of a 4yr old boy and his pet toad and is set in a garden. The production is aimed at 3-5 year olds and so the setting etc. is all made up of basic shapes. However, i have chosen not to use any language within the piece and to convey all emotion through facial expressions and the relationship and actions between the characters.
I've barely even started learning Maya yet due to the research content of my studies (but will do so through online tutorials) and was hoping for some tips and advice on animating facial expressions, from those in the know!
Greatly appreciate any advice anyone can give me.
