Jelp with my four limbs

Posted in Custom Workstation

Ok what I am asking is probably silly and dumb and easy to do but I am finding it more difficult than originally intended.
I am making 3 figures with four extra arms. Spiderman, Spidey doppelganger, and spiderman from the far future.
I need a way to put these extra arms in the body that allows no loss of motion. With out adding torso to the body.
I would also like tips for doing this for spiral as well, but the configuration will have to be very different.
More of a triangular set up versus the straight line set up on the spideys.

when I said snap I meant snapping apart body cavities.

your spidey looks good. I will look more later and give you a tip if you want. But I gotta go.

and yes, before I hosted my own pics on my own server I used Photobucket and Village Photos. (I like villagephoto.com better but both are good)

You can always just have Photobucket remember your login.

Ah, Imageshack is good if you need to do a quick upload, Photobucket is annoying sometimes because you have to log in all the time but at least it keeps all your goodies safe.

Since I don't have an account, I liked being able to use it without one. I have had problems where it glitches up though. Maybe ill use photobucket from now on...

Imageshack is glitchy though, I used to use it and it would keep lagging me out or denying my correct password. Sometimes you can't even see your pictures! Maybe it's just my browser but Photobucket hasnt given me any problems yet.

Use photobucket.com

Make an account and then you can upload all the pictures you want. They'll never be deleted unless you want them to. You can make folders too to organize all your stuff.

Sorry to Snap on the spiral but dang its awesome. I can hardly wait for that tutorial. I know it had to have been harder than you make it look, Kyle.
Unfortunately I need to find a good place to host my pics cause I do have pics of my work so far but I am not hosted at this time.
Hoping to remedy that soon. But here is my best explanation. I have taken a !st apperance spiderman from ML giant man series I think I don't remember anymore. I dremelled arm slots for the joint in the side/ middle of the body being careful to keep the ab joint intact. Then I dremeled a second slotin the waist. I then puttied those areas to clean up the area. Inserted the arms and found its way to loose, If you insert the arms they hold and look good for pics but if jostled they fall out fairly easily.
I am more than willing to start over if anyone has any better way of doing it but I figured someone here has to have made one there is no way I am the first one to try this. And with masters like Kyle here a solution has to be out there.
If I am lucky I may have a picture up later today.

no body snaps on my spiral (I would though to tackle 6 arm spider or dop) its not as hard as it looks. I will make a tut when I do my own spiral (this was commissioned, or else I would just take her apart and show you) any one can it!!

Damn, this sounds like a complicated tutorial...I'm picturing snapping apart bodies and drilling through them, from the inside-out, to screw into the shoulders...but there has to be a much less messy way to do this...

Ok Kyle I've said before I'll say it again Damn you make it look easy. LOL
Unfortunately you will definatly need to show your work in a tutorial because I ain't that talented.
Also I am doing my Spider man with six arms directly below one another in an I style and my problem is that right now the arm stiay in until you jossel the figure and I need a secure way to hold them with out losing the articulation.
