How To Draw Unguligrade Bipeds (IE: Hoofed People) by The13thBlackCat How To Draw Unguligrade Bipeds (IE: Hoofed People) by The13thBlackCat
Edit How To Draw Unguligrade Bipeds: Advanced Course /Edit

One of my biggest peeves in fantasy art is seeing perfectly good--amazing, even!--artists manage to fuck up what seems to be fairly basic leg anatomy. And after seeing one too many fucked up fauns and SNAFU'd satyrs, I finally decided the world needed a tutorial on how to do things right (because I am always right, you see, because this is the internet).

Well, anyway. I thought someone might find this useful. It feels weird to do a tutorial; I never thought I would. I'm horrible at teaching.

I kinda want some kind of llama character now

Would you mind if I use the llama legs?

Oh, I don't mind, it was just an example anyway. Not like I've copyrighted the idea. Go crazy! :D

I prefer the shorter legs and normal torso.
BTW you say sth about not enough space for leg muscles... but you didn't consider that if you enshorten the torso, you make too less space for inner organs and torso muscles;] I think these are more important^^ So I don't tkink it's a good idea to enshorten the torso just to 'make space' for legs^^
This is the only panel I disagree with^^ The rest sounds fine:)

Not sure if this question has been asked already, but are there canine and feline fauns even though that that isn't the true definition of a faun? And also would the legs look slightly different except for paws instead? 

Excellent tutorial btw! I loved the llama legs so much :3
