Step 1: Material

tools and materials that you need in this project

* glue gun




Step 2: Making a Sketch


at the beginning you have to make a sketch for Posture , and decide how to build it , for me i made in The sitting posture and I designed it in combination way , making them to pieces then combine them

Step 3: Measurement

you can take any measurement you want.

There is no need for accuracy. Just draw it by your hand directly.

Step 4: Making Ribs

Draw and cut the three ribs (the j shape) , they will be as a fixer for the other parts (skeleton), then Draw the layers of the chest in different measures , but you have to be sure they are all in a good way , be sure you are cutting as well as you can to have edges on a one line.

Make small gapes in the two shapes will make them fixed together so, you do not need to use the glue gun .

but In main parts ,like the heavy shapes you need to use it .

After that , fix the shoulder to the three ribs then Arrange the body in layers
, and put them together Starting with the chest to the feet

Step 5: Technique

make the same technique to hand, legs, etc) or create your own one .

Step 6: The End
