I am very new to Blender, so please forgive how simple this sounds and is. I am working on a spoof of VeggieTales, and I have a character who is pretty much a capsule, and I want to be able to bend him somewhere near his middle. I thought trying to create an armature in three segments (3 bones) would work for animating him, but I don't know how to connect the bones to each other. Can anyone help with this?
I've tried to connect them by making one a parent of the other, but any time I go into "Pose Mode", and try to rotate them, they simply come apart - as you can see.
Basically, I want the bones to stay together at the joints, and if the one at the bottom moves, then so do all the rest, etc. Thank you for any help you can give!!
