I have been looking around (no, really) for a metal skeleton model for maya, but all i have found is a 50 $ one. does anybody know if i can get a free one and if so, where? i'm looking for a terminator-like metal skeleton

Pooky, you should be ashamed... *shakes head* wink

You don't even know how to use photoshop and AE, and yet you go on to try Maya. All this time, you unleash newb questions upon us without putting in the least amount of effort to do tutorials or experiment to find your own solution.

Oh my gosh I just had a great idea:

I will start a n00bish question post! That way, sidey and sollthar and aculag and mecha will know that n00bish questions are being asked and won't go see it. But people that don't mind being asked questions by people that aren't as good as themselves can come and see it and help me. So now when I have a question I fear is n00bish, I will post it there!
