Regarding the first image, the way I draw the hip area and legs in general is pretty exaggerated, I remove a lot of muscle and curve the bones. The left of each set is more correct if you’re aiming to be more realistic.
The second image is just how I personally stretch legs into different body types. The third is one of my most generic poses and some feet. I approach the bottoms of the feet the same way I do hands and I make toes by just overlapping the little circles. The fourth image features some attempts at different positions I don’t show as much, an area I still have to work on myself.
I’ve still yet to recover from my recent lethargy, so this was all I could think to do… but I hope this is of at least some use! Sorry! :(
This is really good to look at, thank you for posting it!
Gosh I need to practice my legs/feet so much. ;;

Cheat-sheet for drawing girl legs sideways. This is mostly from my own observation, and using the straight/curve principal for appeal in drawing.

I couldn’t go on to explain some tips and tricks without touching anatomy fkrgjr XD so very quick summary on legs! I hope this helps! Jackets will be next and then I will get to basics such as t-shirts, accessories, shoes, etc.
Any suggestions just send an ask!
Very true and helpful! Remember, there are many types of legs. Here are some of my examples
Study from different artists and observe from real life. Legs are fun to mess around with! I’ll never settle down with one style of drawing legs @_@
Leg poses can be tough so practice. Study from dancers or take yoga to look at yourself in a huge mirror. Go crazy but make sure it makes sense. Legs help to establish a dynamic pose. It’s my favorite part of drawing, along with expressions and hands~
