I need to design some aide memoir cards for a martial arts club, to help people learn the forms (kata - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kata). These are to consist of a series of stick men in the various positions of the forms.
There a are a lot of variations, so I want to make it as simple as possible. Ideally I want to have a stick man in something like illustrator where I can "lock" the line lengths / joints etc so I can drag the limbs into the correct positions.
I know this can be done in stuff like Maya / 3d Studio Max, but a) I don't have them (and don't want to pay for them) and b) it's a bit over complex. My preference is to use either Adobe CS stuff, an online tool, or something opensource.
