dont animate the arms in IK?
hes not picking anything up, and even if i dont think an IK solution is really needed.

And the issue is probably your skin weights.

I thought that your not supposed to rotate and move the joints them selves?

What I was taught, You should not rotate the joints before binding.
But after binding, You can move them freely. In my first rig I never used any IK handles. I move the joints on their own to do posing. To make the joints easier to grab, I displayed the joint's selection handles and move them outside the geometry.
Those + signs are the handles.

Nice Kirby you got there. I never use the toon shader though.
Are you gonna model all 100 kerbys?
That'll be fun!:attn:

i love those 100 kirbys :p

you should start with something simple that doesn't have hair or involve you having to remake the whole body like megaman or the cyber ninja
