Naira's Basic Anthro Anatomy by NairasIllustrations
Naira's Basic Anthro Anatomy
Uhhh been getting a surprising amount of people asking me for help with overall anthro anatomy recently XD

Was going to post 4 separate images but couldn't be bothered :p

Key things to keep in mind:
- Elbow and ribcage/waist line up
- Hands and groin line up, fingers should be on the thigh
- Shoulder-to-elbow and elbow-to-wrist should be the same length unless exaggerating on purpose
- The way I personally do anthro legs is I make the hip-to-knee and knee-to-ankle shorter than a human and extend the foot. I also make those proportions the same length, but I see various artists change this up for anthro-leg purposes. Find what works for you! Anthro legs are BASICALLY just a human standing on their tippy-toes!

Males:
- In general I make their ribcages a tad wider, broader shoulders, and tiny hips.
- Their chest and groin/pelvis I tend to draw more triangular or rectangular.
- Pecs come from armpits and tend to be a bit squarish
- Thicker neck, more of a "bulge" of muscle between neck and shoulders

Females:
- In general I make their ribcages a tad smaller and not-too-broad shoulders, skinnier waist that curves out into hips.
- I almost draw a pair of panties for the groin/pelvis!
- Hips should be approximately as wide as the shoulders.
- I tend to make the thighs thicker/wider at the top.
- Boobies come down from armpits!
- Think "hourglass figure"

This is just a general outline of how I personally like to draw average anthro anatomy and some key things I've learned about realistic anatomy. Obviously I have more to learn and I'm in no way a master of anatomy XD But I hope this at least helps some aspiring/beginner artists out at first with their basic anatomy :3

Hi, I'm known as Naira (Pronounced "Ny-ra"), though my real name is Jessie Strickland. I am 24 and I live in Australia. I use Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet when I work digitally.

I'd love to do more generic fantasy/human work, and I hope to get into the industry somewhere someday! My dream is to have my artwork published for a book/company :)
