The Lower Body

Next we will look at how Kila’s lower body reacts when we move her legs into extreme positions. The main area we will be looking at is where her legs join to her torso.

Setting Up the Lower Body Skeleton

For our work on the lower body, we start by creating the skeleton that will drive the legs.

You only need to look at one of her legs, since they are more or less identical in construction. Just remember that if you make any changes to the left leg, you will have to copy these changes across to the right.

1. In the side view, switch your display to wireframe.

2. Create six joints at key points in the leg and foot. As illustrated in Figure 6.25, the first joint should be just below the waistline, at the top of the hip. This will be followed by joints placed at the hip, knee, ankle, the ball of the foot, and finally at the tip of the toes.
