I’ve finally made my first character and it’s a vacuum…only problem is, I’m stuck on the hose. I want to create the type of hose that lloks like this:
Now I know that the little ridges should be on the texture, but I don’t want to do it that way. BUT, I don’t want the hose to have as many wedges as seen in the photo.
Basically what I want is a hose with a few ridges like in the photo, but I don’t know where to set up the bones to make it move properly in an animation. I don’t want to use 50 bones and set up a complicated thing that won’t work. But at the same time I want it to look good. I know there’s gotta be a simple way to do this, I’m just still too new to all this!
EDIT: I got the hose built fine, but I’m ot sure if I should set up a simple bone structure or ry my hand at an IKA type chain… :-?
