For my creature research I did a study on my pet chickens specifically on their feet/leg anatomy, as I feel I might use this feature for the creature.
I filmed and took photos of my chickens to study them and did a full page of studies. I’ve noticed they are very finger like with several joints on their toes (it’s very weirdly human like!) and whenever they lift a foot up to walk or to balance the toes close like a fist. I feel this helps me understand how the legs work and move.
