08 Joint Design Nº 131
I am playing around, trying to see if I can figure out a way to determine how much more of the leg socket I need to cut to get the leg to rotate to at least a 90° angle in relation to the torso. Here, the leg is in a standing position, with the torso, leg, and ball supported by oil-clay. Click on any image to enlarge it.
Here I have rotated the leg and ball in the hip socket until it stopped. I still have a little ways to go to get that 90° angle. The trick for me is to be able to make little tests like this without dropping carving wax doll parts on the floor. That is one reason I am working on the floor.
