Creature Factory worth it?

Hi. How’s about a short intro and background, and then my question?

So, I’m a young wannabe animator. I started by learning Animation: Master, so the transition to Blender was quite a shock. First impression of Blender was: “No splines? How do you people model?” Since then I’ve learned a bit, however I have a long way to go.

Onto my question:

Would Creature Factory be worth it, or are there other videos that do a better job of teaching modeling techniques and animation?
