Wormwood – Making a caterpillar bend

Wormwood - closeup of caterpillar

Wormwood was to be a….worm. Well, he ended up a caterpillar. So maybe he’s a caterpillar in a bigger world called Wormwood. Yeah, that sounds good.

My intent with this character was to create an armature so that I could move and pose him. Initially he was modeled in a straight line. In the images below, I had grabbed and lifted his head (Disclaimer: No digital caterpillars were injured during this process.) and his body followed by bending at each section.

Getting the “bends”:
