Leg Anatomy Tutorial (Version 2) by Jeff-H Leg Anatomy Tutorial (Version 2) by Jeff-H
Leg Anatomy and measurement tutorial. Gotta love legs. Mmm.

More tutorials can be found in my gallery, in the Tutorials folder.

Currently available tutorials:
Female figure
Basic Hand
Basic Expression
Arm Anatomy
Leg Anatomy

Sometimes people ask me why I use such insanely meticulous and yet unnecessary measurements. The reason? Well, although I personally don't need to measure so incredibly carefully, it's not only extremely beneficial knowing the exact location (hence allowing me to make more accurate estimates), but because it's for your benefit as well.

I've seen a lot of tutorials that gave a nice explanation, but still forced me to estimate the distances and sizes. Those tutorials, while somewhat helpful, didn't allow me to improve my anatomy at all. I always wished there was some kind of exact comparison, some kind of exact tutorial, for me to use.

I have not mastered or perfected anything prior to creating these tutorials. In fact, most of the time, I'm new to the subject!

I make my tutorials through extensive observation from both real life and references.

After studying these references, I am left with a huge canvas filled with images, ideas, measurements, and notes. So, why not organize them and turn them into a tutorial for everyone to use?

Update: Thank you so much for making this a daily deviation! I never would have imagined myself on the daily's page. Both very honored and surprised!

Thank you for making this. I've been struggling with legs. Got torso and arms down, but legs are my arch enemy.
