Once you have your basic 3 ZSphere arrangement, you are ready to start adding…to the armature, to create more of a figure like shape.

If I press the A key,…right now my figure still looks like a bit of a sausage, but I can fix that…very quickly. I can move the head away from the rest of the body. To do this,…I'm going to switch to the Move button.…

I'm just going to drag him upwards to create more of a neck.…I'm going to add another ZSphere in between those two. To do this I click back…on the Draw button, and I can click any one of these interconnecting ZSpheres…
