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!

This is truly a great reference guide, it even kinda made me chuckle as i was reading Flora's dialog, Your Opinion on this matter is very well thought out and perfected. I can actually say i will probably be using this throughout my drawing career
