Once you have a strong grasp of the fundamentals, you can now begin modeling more complex characters. You’ll learn to build higher resolution characters and think about UVs and textures as well. You’ll also learn to use Maya’s sculpting tools.


In the advanced tutorials, you’ll focus more on character heads as you look at a couple of different workflows for modeling. You’ll also get a chance to create a more detailed, full character.
