Digigrade Legs for the Scientifically Accurate: by Jesseth Digigrade Legs for the Scientifically Accurate: by Jesseth
I have no idea why I suddenly really wanted to make this, but I figure it could be useful to a few people out there who really like species design or world building? .... or maybe just people who want to draw more anatomically accurate furries. That too. XD


... Not an awful lot to say, other than that this is meant to help give people IDEAS for designing characters, species, ect.
It is NOT intended as a 'this is definitively how you draw legs tutorial.' You don't have to change the way you draw just because a creature's legs wouldn't hold them in real life.... I'm just... Really into science<3

For the sake of visual aid where my scrawlings are a bit lacking, here's some nice pics I used for reference of some of the animals shown:

Ostrich: [link]

Wren: [link]

T-rex and troodon: [link]

T-rex skeleton: [link]

Gazelles standing up: [link]

Kangaroos on all fours: [link]

That about wraps it up!
Just to reiterate, take whatever input you wish from this, and good luck drawing!

the only thing in this that actually belongs to me is the crocatiels<3

One little teeny thing you might wanna tweak actually. Kangaroos are plantigrade, but when hopping they take the apperance digitgrade stance.

I will probably never need to use this, due to my preferring humans over, well...anything with digigrade legs, really. Still this was very insightful so I'm tucking it away from reference.

This is great.  I've been looking for a way to design humanoids with digigrade legs for a while and this is a big help.

Coincidentally, I have been sketching about the same recently, and pretty much reached your same conclusions. :+fav:
