Tkturials - Digitigrade Legs Guide by Twokinds Tkturials - Digitigrade Legs Guide by Twokinds
Twokinds Tutorials - Digitigrade Legs

Looking around Deviantart, I noticed that there weren't very many good, detailed guides on drawing characters with digitigrade legs, like those featured on my Keidran and Basitin races. Digitigrade, for those unaware, is a term for an animal that walks on their digits (toes) rather that flat-footed, as we humans do. This style of character design can be difficult for someone unused to this type of anatomical structure. Now, I am not claiming to be any sort of expert. But I have been drawing these guys for more than ten years now, and I often get asked how I draw certain things. So this is not necessarily a "how to draw" tutorial" as it is a "how I draw" tutorial, if you get my meaning.

I hope this information can prove useful for those of you who are aspiring artists, or at least interesting to those who wish to learn more about how I go about my drawing process. So without further adieu, please allow Flora to demonstrate for you how it works! Enjoy!

Since I almost always walk on my toes when I'm not wear shoes anyway, it was nice seeing someone pay attention to HOW that configuration moves.

Loving this tutorial, funnily enough it's helping my perspective on body structure. You taught me something I couldn't learn by looking down at my own body.

Hello. I love this tutorial. If you don't mind, can I save this so I can study it more thuroghly? I am an anthro artist myself, so this would help me refine my own characters.

Great reference art here. It is very rare to find good ones, as far as I know. But this is really awesome. Thanks for sharing this. Lately, though I have been in favor of plantigrade anthros, in my drawing style for my hybrid character. But this would certainly help for a dragon like character I've been working on. I enjoy the humor you added in the art guide, it was really entertaining. :)
