Nsio Body Practice1: Muscles of the Inner-thigh by Nsio Nsio Body Practice1: Muscles of the Inner-thigh by Nsio
I've been drawing some... questionable pose practices and started to wonder how the muscles actually go around the thighs. I haven't done much of anatomy studies, so I thought it was high time I try to figure out why the thighs look like they do. These were solely for quick practicing purposes since I lack the knowledge about the anatomy, so I don't advice you to take this as absolute truth about the inner-thighs.

At first I drew things the way I thought they were. Then I googled for the references, and tried to remember the details and then drew the drawings (I didn't have any references in front of me as I drew, but I kept peeking at references every now and then).

1. From memory. Just the lower torso
2. From memory. The lower torso from a bit different angle
3. From memory. I think it looks something like this...
4. From memory. Side view.
5. From memory. Side view, just the thigh
6. Referenced. The muscles of the inner-thigh seen from front.
7. Study. An attempt to draw the muscles by applying various references.
8. Referenced. The muscles of the inner-thigh seen from behind.
9. Study. An attempt to draw the strongest buttocks by applying various references.

( not trying to offend anyone ) 

artists are weird, to us we sometimes look at others around us to catch body shape, body features, parts and movement, it's better to see these things in reali life and active that way when were drawing it looks more realistic, are we know what we,re trying to aim for. 

We look at things like ow the way lights hits object or how shadow, tone, hue and the form of the object changes the way the shadow passes over the things. 

But yah some comments are weird, but personally I thinks it's funny XD ^.^

All poses very interesting.
Shows power in every muscle.
The muscle separation you depict is very well drawn.
The shading is also very well depicted.
I say for a drawing this is superb, keep it up.

You should look into the running poses or look at body builders butts.  ( even though that's a bit odd for some )
Some glutials have dimples because they are really strong. The bum doesn't specifically stay round all the time for girls, but if you were to flex there, it will feel like a bicep when flexed. ( my bum used to be like that until I got ahold of candy .-. )
Just be sure to know that that little bump area down low usually shows more on the front half.

Alot of female bodybuilders i know have very round rears, especially those that get into some weight resistant training and deadlift. Its mostly due to the fact that ass is a mostly made of  pure muscles and gets bigger as you workout, and that womens lower body are structurally equipped differently then men.

My wifes has a round one but shes not super athletic. Mines is round and i totally athletic, and dont look feminine at all. So it depends on alot of factors. I keep hearing this thing about guys having square butts...dont know whats that about. But i work out a lot and i thinks its got a lot to do with genetics too. Some peoples butt wont look like others. Some are more flat, some more round, some in-between. All are beautiful to someone, in its own way !

BTW: No ones judging. Candy is good, and even though it doesn't show up in my waits/ass... i got a sweet tooth, and tooth aches are no joke. My teeth aren't perfect ! Sometimes small flaws are more beautiful. Keep munchin the candy...just enjoy responsibly ;)

Indeed, those would definitely give some new insight about the muscles.
Hmm, I see. The shape of the bum and its connection to the legs has always been sort of a mystery for me.
That "little bump area down low", what part are you exactly referring to? Do you mean the area of the bum which is about to meet the thighs? I got curious :D

Thanks for your comment, I'll keep these in mind when I get to study the buttocks next time!

The "Bump area down low", I am referring to the females privates. If you were to take two Watermelon sized jello molds ( hind-end ), then put a orange between the jello molds around front ( privates ), you will see that the jello almost forms around the orange but doesn't fully cover it. That's what I think of when I am drawing the lower end of the spectrum ( the lady catcher xD ). I mean, I'm not a pro at all or the very least good at hyper realistic drawings, but I'd rather learn the functions of the bones and muscles first so I can manipulate the human form, knowing it's bending and stretching boundries.

About your mystery; think the legs kind of like those delicious chicken legs you eat. We need our rear to move, if we didn't have it, every step we took would be impossible. Remember that there are diffrent bums everywheeeeereeee |( ̄3 ̄)|

(( Completely useless knowledge I am assuming for you, thanks for your time Hun x3 )

Ah, the inner thighs! A point of difficulty in my own artistic studies. Personally, the connection of the crotch to the "filler" abductors is definitely the hardest part for me to visualize in any drawing I do (Number 6, where the arrows are pointing, are what I refer to). I've seen variants where the abductors are larger or smaller, but the exact connection to the bottom of the hip area has been a source of confusion for me. These images are a good way to base my searches in order to find proper reference and study their relationships in greater detail.

Never thought I'd see you do muscle studies, haha xD

:iconnsio:
Nsio Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, they are ridiculously hard to visualize. It was really hard to find good references about that part as well, as there were hardly any reference seen from "inner side". Then another problematic thing is that the legs are almost always viewed in general standing pose, so it's hard to understand how the muscles transform in other poses. Seriously, the only few good references about that area can be found from hentai mangas.

Indeed, very rare study from me :D. On the other hand, this area of body is relevant to my interest so I want put a lot of effort in learning to draw it haha! x'D
