I'm having tremendous problems attaching the arm of my zombie to the torso.

The problem I'm encountering is, every time I attach the arm, the shoulder warps in animations requiring the arm to be extended forwards.

One person suggested I use the same trick WoW uses, but I can't work out how they got their model to not stretch/warp, because even with that method the shoulder deforms like a piece of clippy-lego.

Could somebody give me a hand with this?

I might end up adding an extra bone on the shoulder that rotates only the connecting polygons to reduce the stretching

I literally stood in front of a mirror with my sleeves rolled up trying to work out how to bend the arm without warping and I only succeeded in waving my arms around for 5 minutes :p

*Edit

Oh God, it's getting worse! D:
