At 5:35 after deselecting the root verts, I scale down, the highlighted verts just move downward. I'm using 2.90. I've deleted the legs and started over but still same. Any suggestions?

Same as above. 

  • How do you scale? With the Skin Modifier, you must use CTRL+A to scale the segments.

  • spikeyxxx. You. Are. Awesome.!     Thanks so much. Usually I can figure out bumps in the road with Blender but just couldn't find the answer to this one. I was using normal Scale and then tried ALT-S. Never thought about using CTRL-A.  I must remember, Use CTRL-A with the skin modifier. Happy Blending !
