Anatomy of the leg: grand tour by Zedna7 Anatomy of the leg: grand tour by Zedna7
CAUTION: very dry language. That combined with walls of texts is deemed to be read slowly XD

This tutorial goes about the features of the legs that might prove helpfull when drawing. That includes the form of the thigh, knee and lower leg. It also explains why the leg looks like how it does ^^

I apologise for such a huge file, I wanted to make sure everyone could read it~ also english is not my first language, let alone the second, but bear over with me over that.

Thank you for viewing, I hope this was somewhat helpfull and comments are highly welcome.

the two first pictures are taken from www.britannica.com

the very muscular legs are inspiried by www.posemaniacs.com and I'd highly reckommen that site if you have any trouble with any part of the bodies or just looking for a pose to inspire you :)

I'm glad you like it
I've been meaning on changing and adding the feets though, just didn't had the time yet.

heh.
I think mebbe if you did add the feets, with the effort you would put into it, it'd be better to make it seperate.:iconmyaplz:

This is actually really helpful. Most full-body anatomy tutorials go over the leg very quickly - "There's a curve here, here and here! Now on to the foot!" - so it's really nice to see something so detailed. :)
