Remember that the bones are very important when defining how the leg looks. When standing straight the shin bone curves outwards but looks straighter due to the size of the calf muscle.

Here is a dispicably crude paint image- red is basic bone structure, green is major muscles.

Hope that helps.

You know?

A lot of gothic manga artists just draw their characters'legs like sticks. Not really like wooden pegs, but I mean there's no real anatomy. You can make your art appealing with that way, too.

Don't tell anyone I said this...

Stick legs arn't appealing. I know what you're talking about, though, but they actually have underlineing anatomy. They just deform it. :P

As for legs, these may help. They may be jsut plain anatomy refs, but the leg muscles are still there.
