    You forgot to flip your UVs on several of faces.  That's why your texture on the arms and legs look the same on both the left and right sides.

    Your joint placement for both your shoulders and hips are odd.  It's going to cause rotation from the wrong position.  And leaving out a pelvis joint is going to greatly reduce the mobility of the character's hips when it comes to animation.

    And you can set the joint radius in your preferences so you don't have keep setting it.

    Sorry this comment is so broken up, I did it as I noticed things in the tutorial.

    TO PROPERLY CONNECT CURVES:
    I had a problem where when I tried to connect the curves of the square, it would bend them. To fix this, go to the Attach Curves options and change attach method to Connect.

    mmhh well, make sure your controllers are freeze (all XYZ to 0) and same for your mesh parts.
    Just to be sure my bind settings are Bind to : Selected joints, Bind method : Closest in hierarchy and dual quaternion skinning method

    when I binded the skin, the mesh is FREAKING OUT because when I bend my IK handles, the mesh just kind of folds in on itself. all the bind settings are exactly like yours

    For the knees and elbows you could also try putting in locators for the IK Chains on the legs. That way the IK knows which way to bend.

    The other parts sound like skinning issues, you could try editing the joints weights on the affected verticies Select Mesh then makes sure you are are the animation menu then go to Skin> Edit Smooth Skin > Paint Skin Weights Tool (always open the options so you can bring up properties )

    Just wanted to say though awesome tutorial though 🙂

    if you want something as in-game , you don't need to add edges on the knee, knee controller or knee bone. You just need to add 1 bone on each legs (not 2) and a controller for each foot. Skin process is the same, only the setup character changes.

    try to remake the skin, first delete it by selecting your joints on your knee + the geometry (the leg) with Shift key, in Skin > Detach Skin and then redo your skin.

    do you add the edges at the begining around the arms and legs on your mesh? cause you need it for bending and when you move the controller, your leg bend? at 12:52 is this working good?
    if all are fine it's probably in the smooth Bind options.Bind to : Selected joints,
    Bind method : Closest in hierarchy, dual quaternion skinning method

    When i bind the skin to the joints and move them with the ik handle the arms and legs do not bend they just move up and down like in minecraft, how do i fix this?

    Yup. Then I tried going into side view and adding them manually on the sides but it just led to more problems. If we could screenshare, my skype is eliotsgraphics
    Thanks for the help:D

    Polygon, I'm in a bit of a hitch. When I do the edge loops in Front view, the top Edge Loop from the middle of every body part doesn't appear on the 3 other sides when I go into frontal view.
