hi i started blender a few days ago, made a simple model of a person and now wanna be able to animate him. i did the armature tutorial and for some reason when i extrude from the spine for the hip bones, they dont stay connected. also when i finish placing all the bones and parent them, and finally go into pose mode. the bone in the head doesnt move the mesh around it, and neither do the bones in the feet. also i can only move the arm bones up and down.
any suggestions are greatly appreciated,
