I’m trying to do the Your First Animation in 30 plus 30 Minutes Part Itutorial in the blender 2.6 manual but I can’t get my character to look like the one in the tutorial, every time I press E to extrude, it just, extrudes at an angle coming at me, instead of extruding flat down on the page, so when I try to extrude more the end result looks horrible.
The tutorial wants me to make something like this
But when I try to extrude I get something like this
So, I just gave up on the tutorial until I can figure out how to get the angles to be flat,
I don’t have a middle mouse button (mmb). I tried shift+ lmb and ctrl+lmb but that does help to control the angle
