Tips on drawing fat on digitigrade legs?


Well-Known Member
Well, they would distribute fat much like a plantigrade leg, since all the parts are the same (just different proportions). Just keep in mind that anything past the ankle joint is going to be part of the foot, even though its off the ground. Feet and ankles can gain some fat, but always less than the thighs, so keep those parts a bit thinner. It would also depend on how human vs. how animalistic your leg style is, so it might help to compare the legs of the animal species to see which parts are more fatty/muscly and which are more bony.

Like the person above said, they are very similar. Something that helps me is looking at people wearing heels. Then they’re even walking on their toes, and it gives a better idea as to what you’re doing.
