“Once the instrument is created,
its operational requirements shape
the form of its members”

The Creator's lower body as it stands today :-)
Even thought it is a far cry form being even close to finish, the Creator has already began getting an attitude. I had to re-drill some holes to balance the parts but overall feels good. It stands straight when held by the "spinal cord" and it seems very easy to make it move in a very natural way, as expected. After all I am following the master's instructions.
The picture on the lower left corner shows the back of the hips where you can see the misalignment of the channels that lead to the waist stays. It really bothers me but it does not affect the performance, only my self-esteem! Maybe the Creator gets a hip replacement operation some day.
