I followed this tutorial to rig a character and animate it, however, when I got to the weight paint part, the weight paint only worked on certain parts of the model I created.

See below: Weight paint effecting arms and legs, but not the body

The weight paint is only affecting the arms and legs. All the models are joined together.

I already tried solutions like when someone posted a similar problem here and here to no avail, so please do not mark this as a repeated question.

Thank you in advance!

    $\begingroup$ The weights are assigned to vertices by vertex groups. It looks like the blue body/head is a cube with only 8 vertices. If so, click at the corners to assign the weights. If you need finer detail, you will need to subdivide the mesh to create more vertices. $\endgroup$
