Exercise 4: Prototype armature
Activity: Make a simple armature (the bones of your character) from simple materials (such as lego, tongue depressors & pins or even paper cutouts) which demonstrates the key motions your character needs to perform. The goal isn’t to make something beautiful but to demonstrate the motions of your character.
In the next exercise, you’ll have a chance to recreate this armature using a digital modeling tool.
