I know it's not free, but Newtek Lightwave is a fairly popular one, and one of the easier ones to use. Some tutorials on that would be cool.

That aside, everything else is awesome, especially the Blender tutorials.

I am compiling a resource image list for character modeling that includes multi-angle images of women and men, as well as a complete animal collection. All images will be modified in Photoshop to show top, front, left/right, and rear (if necessary) views, and to maintain proper proportions.

If anyone has any suggested materials that could make for a great addition, please let me know.
