Im trying to make an arm for my little guy that i can animate so I want to I guess "taper" this cylinder around the other so it looks natural is there a way other than bending it a lot around the edgeenter image description here

You can accomplish this with the Boolean Modifier. Simply add a Boolean Modifier to the small cylinder, set the Operation to Difference, set the Object to your large cylinder, and then apply the operation.

However, I would advise against using a cylinder this way on a character you are planning on animating, as a cylinder could create messy geometry. It would be better to extrude out some quads from the side of your character.

From here, press E to extrude

  • $\begingroup$ @YEET In edit mode on your large cylinder, select four faces in face select mode Ctrl + Tab > Face, and press E to extrude them out. I've added a picture to my answer demonstrating the selection. $\endgroup$
