Need Help with a Very Simple Rig

I’ve been trying to rig this guy for like, 3 hours, and I cant do it. The problems seem to arise when I try to set the bones as the parents of the body parts. If someone could rig him for me, thats be great, but if you could help me fix it myself, thatd also be great. Thx

Hi!
You need to do some weight paint or automatic weight for your bones to connect them to your mesh and to move the mesh
Try following the rigging tutorial:
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Your_First_Animation/2.Animating_the_Gingerbread_Man

Is in the series of “your first animation” documentation tutorials: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Your_First_Animation

Thanks so much man. I watched a video about the parenting with automatic weights, but the video didnt explain how to remove the unwanted vertices that might accidentally get added, but this page explains that, so thanks! :slight_smile:
