LNY/DTM Anthro Extremities Anatomy by LatinNewYorker LNY/DTM Anthro Extremities Anatomy by LatinNewYorker
Something I've been wanting to share with you all. This is a sample of my concept at anthro anatomy drawing, focused on different extremities for some species.



Standard: Used mostly on humans. No particularity at all. Usually my base to species I don't attribute specific characteristics.

Avians: The hands have "tapering" fingertips due to its slim, feather-resembling shape. The soles and toes are usually slim as well, although some are more flat and wide (e.g. ducks).

Bigger Species: Involves large four-footed animals, like bovines, ursines, equines, swines, pachyderms etc. Their extremities are generally plump - thick fists and ankles, chubby palms and soles and roundish fingers and toes.

Canines/Felines/Leporids: Also used for some other small mammals (e.g. mustelids). Goes from a slim wrist/ankle to a pudgy palm/sole. Fingers/toes are less plump than the "bigger species" ones.

Reptiles/Amphibians: As slim as the avian ones, but a bit more "stretched". The hand has longer fingers with rounded fingertips; the feet has rounded toes and a longer instep, with a bigger distance from the arches to the heel.

Simians/Rodents: The slimmest of the bunch. Palms and soles resembles the "standard" ones, but fingers and toes are quite slim and with a specific shape.



The purpose of each style, as you probably imagined, is to resemble the real life species, making them the best mix possible between human and animal body parts.

Although I use this as my main concept to draw my anthros, there are some exceptions. Case of Shosaru and Naam, for instance: they've got slim wrists/ankles with pudgy hands/feet (labeled "Canines/Felines/Leporids"), even if they are, respectively, a simian and a rodent.

Needless to say, every opinion, tip or suggestion regarding it is very appreciated. ;)

In most cases they all seem quite stubby.
