I've been lurking here a while and thought I'd finally start posting. I've decided to take up 3d animation in a effort to make a living through art. I was wondering if there are any websites or books that folk here could recommend.
I've found tons of 3d sites but I wonder which ones are the best. I have 3ds Max 6.0 (not sure if character studio works though) and Maya Personal Learning Edition at my disposal. I have made progress, the programs are just far too dense for me to sit down and learn on my own as I did Photoshop.
Great site by the way. This is by far the best art resource site I have found on the web.
