It's possible.  I can't really recommend a tutorial because I don't
know where you are coming from, and it is a very complex subject.
What do know about 3D animation so far?  Have you done 3D animation in
other languages?  Have you done 3D mesh modeling with a tool like 3DS
Max or Blender?  What is your mathematical background (especially in
linear algrebra)?  Please help us help you by providing us details on
what you know already and what you want to do.  You won't get much
help by asking simple yes/no questions.
