enter image description hereI'm having problems when I want to set the mesh as the armature parent. Once I press Ctrl+P to open the menu and select "With automatic weights" it deforms the mesh.

  1. Select your mesh
  2. Delete the armature modifier it has and delete it's parent and delete all vertex groups
  3. Select your armature
  4. Switch to Pose mode
  5. Select all bones
  6. Press Space Bar and write

    Apply Pose as Rest Pose

  7. Select mesh then armature then Ctrl+P and choose with automatic weighting
