I rebuilt Elvio’s body because the old one is too soft. This time I used chopsticks and Chavant Castilene as an armature so now his body and legs are strong enough to handle the other parts.
However, because of smaller legs and feet compare to his body and head make it unable to stand so I needed to create a base to balance the weight.
At first, I wanted Elvio to be able to stand without a base, but I might have to make his feet and legs much bigger to make it possible. Therefore, I thought it’s better to make a base because if I make the legs or feet bigger, it will ruin his proportion and also his character.
(The hands was the most difficult part to make.)
Another problem I found while making Elvio is that the legs and arms are too close to each other so I cannot do the details on neither hands or legs. Therefore, I decided to separate them and do the details on each part first and connect them together when everything is finished and it helps to prevent any damages because when I didn’t separate them, I kept ruing the details on legs while doing the arms.
