Tutorial for ~SockyDominiq
I'm not an expert on arms or legs so this is not the best tutorial ever, but this is how I draw arms /legs.

Thanks for posting this! Joints, specifically in legs and arms, are probably my biggest struggling point. XD

how to draw the misalignment of legs?
just because some mangaka think it looks sexy doesn't mean it is correct and i fact it looks fucking retarted.
none ever will stand like this

cool. no need to waste your time commenting on other people's OLD art.
no need to be an asshole
try reading the description box or maybe even past comments where I keep saying that this is really old and very bad?
do you just go through bad tutorials just to be an ass to people you don't know?
maybe you should write a tutorial on 'how to be a twat'.

there are lots of cartoons that use the first set of arms and legs. are those like, taboo?
like noodle arms, some artists use them, and they can be completely correct - just bendy. [correct length, bends at where elbow/knee is, etc]
are those okay? or not? ; o ;

Well this tutorial is for more anatomically correct arms and legs (but not really since they're really bad) and the straight bendy type of arts are more for cartoony styles. I use straight bendy arms too when I'm drawing a in that kind of style.

Susie! I've been having trouble with my hands, so I've tried drawing my hands the way you display here, and I've noticed it helps a lot, thank you so much! C: Now it's time for me to practice the Legs! (Oh how I hate to draw legs, too shapely!!)
