Hi, my name is Patricia, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw muscles on cartoon legs. Alright, so, let's draw the cartoon. This is the waist, and let's do the legs. Basically, you know if this guy is muscle-y, he's pretty much all leg. So we'll bring this down here, and the foot. So, here is the legs, the feet. Here are the legs, and notice how I'm outlining it with long loose lines for the muscles. Now if you want to go a step further, let's give this guy some pants. Alright, now that we've made him rated-PG, let us add some more. You could go in here and add more lines like this for muscles if you'd like. You know, usually on cartoons, let's keep it rounded a little bit, they emphasize things. So if this guy is muscle-y, you're going to have the big legs, big muscle-y legs, and you're going to have like, the lines in here just exemplifying muscle, or showing a lot of muscle, so just don't be afraid to do lines to show lots of muscle. That's pretty much here, not so much there. So just keep those lines going and you'll have your muscle. If you want to simplify it, you can always just do like I did in the beginning, just get those wide legs out, add a little line in here for muscle, and you've got it, it's all about the loose, wide lines. Alright, there's muscles on cartoon legs. Enjoy.
