This is not a book about Maya software with a few animation pointers thrown in here and there. This is a guide to Maya written by professional animators. And this is that guide's companion website.

If you're a fan of this series, then you'll know The Goon. This year, we've introduced The Goon to some new friends that you'll get to play with as well. On this site you'll find all exercise and example scene files and extras such as video tutorials and animation files that feature The Goon and his new buddies. We've also kept our How to Cheat in Maya 2013, 2012 and 2010 assets up for you, too.
