Study: The leg 1 by Shockowaffel Study: The leg 1 by Shockowaffel
I think we have enough torso studies now.
It's time for some legs.

The thigh is build very similar to the arm.
On the front side is a triceps (tri = three), consisting of a bundle of three muscles, to straighten the leg.
The triceps on the back of your arm does exactly the same.

Of course the counterpart is the biceps (bi = two).
Logically it is placed on the opposite side of the leg / arm to pull on the bones so the joint forms an angle.
It's really simple.

About the illustration:
1: back view of the thigh
2: outer side view
3: front view
4: inner side view

The part that takes practise (as always) is to understand the forms in a threedimensional way.

yeah you never see studies like this around as much as one used to and beyond that there just a tad bit stylized along with being solidly based in real anatomy. for anyone who actually likes to draw stuff like this is a wet dream.
