First armature

"Do you have it so that you can swap out arms and legs? Also, why so many twisted wires for the arms? Looks like you could have used some thicker gauge wires on the legs / torso. I'm still newish though, so I'm just curious."

"Yes, this is it, needle felting. Basically you buy some loose felt and a needle and poke away. Your local craft store should have all you need to get started."

"You can also use Blender to edit video. It's free to use, although a bit of a learning curve. It does have the power of nodes if you are familiar with using them. https://www.blender.org/manual/en/editors/sequencer/index.html"

DID MONKEY

"That thing looks crazy! It also looks fun to play with. So did you pose it and it posed your rig in XSI?"
