How to Draw Realistic Legs

Artist: Dawn / August 28, 2015

Step 1.

Since the only thing you will be doing is drawing some of the torso, the hips, legs and feet. Start with a small shape for the hip area and then draw the guidelines for the long legs.

Step 2.

You will now begin drawing the body. Start with the upper torso like so, then slowly draw in the back arch, butt and then the back lining for the thigh.

Step 3.

We will now draw the first leg which is stretched out with an arched foot. The leg is on a tilt as you will see in later steps.

Step 4.

Next, draw the second leg which is bent up. The foot is hidden on the side of the first leg. Add detailing to create the dimples in the knees and then draw the panty line for the body suit the model is wearing.

Step 5.

Lastly, sketch in the chest and are ready to erase your mistakes and guides.

Step 6.

Finally, here is your finished drawing. You can color in the body suit any way you like and then show off this nice drawing on realistic legs.

Description: Here is a fun and helpful lesson that will have all you folks out there on your toes. Since I was in the mood to draw body parts, I thought another helpful lesson would be on how to draw realistic legs, step by step. These legs are what I wish my legs looked like. They are beautiful and toned and are also nice and long. Since I'm short, I don't have the luxury of having long legs. Instead my legs are short, but strong and they are not as tan as the ones you see in this lesson. Drawing legs can be complicated, but if you keep trying and stay positive you should be well on your way to drawing legs in any shape, size or form you like. I do hope this lesson on drawing realistic legs helps those of you who have had a hard time doing so. Adios amigos!
