I've been saying for years that I'd like to learn 3D animation... well I finally took the plunge and enrolled in an online class through the Academy of Arts University. The course is ANM 202 OL1: 3D Modeling and Animation 1 (Maya). I was sort of nervous just jumping into a class that uses a program I've never touched before, but luckily for me the online instructor describes things pretty well. And there are videos to watch which really helps a visual learner like me!
Its my first time taking an online only class. Pretty exciting and I'm learning a lot already. Hopefully I'll have something worth sharing by the summer!
