Character modeling tutorial – Sackboy

19. And for the last finger just close that gap and make the 5th finger. If you need more details about these steps with the fingers, don’t hesitate to use our forum.

20. Now we will make the other hand. If you have listened carefully when I said that the holes for the arms should be the same, you should do this step without problems. Just select all polygons from the hand, hold the shift button and drag to the side to create a clone (do this in the front viewport), and check the “Clone to object” button :

21. Select the cloned arm then press the “Mirror” button then choose the X axis to turn it in the other way. Do this in the front viewport :

22. Using the X axis (the red one) drag the hand to the right and place it on the arm’s hole :

23. Having the hand selected, go to the modifier menu and attach the arm to the body. Then weld the vertices from the arm to the body. Check the image to see about what vertices I am talking about :

    I cant post this on the forum since the registry seems to be fubar, but its driving me insane, When making the holes for the hands, are you supposed to align all the vertices one by one first so both holes are 100% equal, or are you supposed to just take the vertexes that are “roughly” in the same area on both areas so that the holes while not being the exact same size is roughly the same?
