Hey all!

So I'm getting *really* close to having my first animated character ready for live streaming! I'm super excited about it.  Just trying to get some fine tweaks sorted out before I use it.

 

like lbows...my dude has long skinny arms, and when I bend them they do a really weird "pinch" at the elbows:

is there a way to get around that? I'd love to have a slightly more smooth/rounded elbow bend if possible.

 

Thanks a bunch!

Some things are hard. In that case all I can suggest is trying to change the sticks - e.g. make them go closer to the join to see if that helps. Or try to put two sticks down both sides of the arms instead of one down the middle. But its just hard that one. I don't think independence will fix it - it will just cause different problems.

Fair enough! It's not a huge issue anyway.  Thanks for your help again!
