Let’s take a look at how to model the tentacle using Bezier Curves and taper curves. We can create both types of shapes with ease in Blender, so letโ€™s get started! First off we need an armature for our mesh; once this has been set up it will be possible move around by moving bone nodes on top if chains instead one single joint like most rigs do – that way you won’t accidental break any bones because they are too high or low compared to other ones when posed into certain positions which could damage them over time as well if not handled delicately enough while posing through angles etc…

In the next video, we will learn how to create a jellyfish that swims by using keys frames and F curve modifiers in blender.

With each keyframe on an empty target for its tentacle animation, this project becomes easier!
