Drawing Legs (Definitely Not Exhaustive)

Someone asked how I draw legs, so this time I figured I'd put together a very short, very brief, somewhat accurate explanation of how legs are constructed

I guess I prefer the "other body type" approach.

This is very nicely done. I wont lie that I have some problems trying to construct digi legs.  I have trouble even trying to draw them in motion.

I have been studying your sketches alot, especially the body part of your sketches.  They really help in trying to construct my bodies during my sketching phase =3

Now I know for certain why digitigrade anthros look off balance to me.  (Of course, it could be a bit of plantigrade bias, too.)
