I'm correcting and tweaking the mesh prior to rigging. Here I've placed the head and shoulders portion in a cloth surface to give the model thickness. From there I used the Fit Circle command to make eight individual circular edges so I can connect the tentacles to what is now the body. And for those who got this far in the post and are thinking about lunch or dinner choices, I recommend the Margherita pie at Joe's Pizza in Santa Monica and West Hollywood. It has a sweet flavor and is arguably the best pizza in Los Angeles. Just saying.
