Whats are some good way to self teach yourself in 3D (maya) animation, or gain experience in animating?
I’ve recently been seriously considering going down a career path of animation. I’m currently working to save up some money to go back to school, and I’m very interested in doing an Animation program. The thing is I’ve still got a lot to learn, I’ve been learning online off of pluralsight, and I can animate basic stuff like motion paths, punches and reacts. Whats tough is that I’m not certain if the way I do things while practicing is the most efficient, or how to get some questions/troubleshooting answered, as I don’t have a prof or TA. I don’t have a background in arts, but I was hoping to learn enough to get into and do well in some of the 1 or 2 year animation programmes near me (vancouver).
I was hoping to find any reccomendations or advice from people coming from a similar scenario.
