spaghettimoon.co.uk has a collection of tutorials available for your learning pleasure. What lead us to the website were some tutorials we discovered that involved the creation of a character in Blender.
spaghettimoon.co.uk says this of the series:
This series of tutorials are aimed at anyone wanting to create efficient and versatile humanoid models. It is a step by step guide to the modelling of surprisingly: a character! All the tutorials are aimed to by as short as possible while being as informative as they can be.
We were also pleasantly surprised to find that there are quite a few other tutorials available on the website. Including some for wings3d. The videos seem to load from the web archive. Something I wasn't sure of at first. But they all loaded. Be patient as it can take awhile for them to download. A few of the videos are quite large and weigh in at 30+ megabytes. And make sure to right click and save as.
