Quadruped - Leg

RIGGING DOJO & GOOSH PRESENT: Quadruped Friendly Rigging!

A Quadruped ('reverse knee') leg is actually quite anatomically similar to a human or other biped leg; the difference is that the knee is higher up and the animal is standing on what in a human skeleton would be the toes.  The 'heel' is raised up and forms a second hinge along with the hinge at the knee.
