I am building a database with descriptions and various other information for strength training exercises.
One of the most important things is to actually let the user get a visual idea of how to perform the exercise, so I want to build a set of clipart pictures that show them. The best example of what I would like to do is this:
Their pictures are in .bmp format, but I don't know how they built them. What's the best/easiest way to accomplish this? Is there software out there that can help with this?
It seems like the best approach would be to be able to design a human mockup and then be able to manipulate its joints to show them in various positions. However, I have basically no experience in design/computer graphics so any help and directing me to relevant resources would be much appreciated.
