Do you have any tips on how to draw anthropromorphic characters?

I used to feel the same way just a few months ago, I think lots of artists go through that :) Don't worry, I'm sure you can get it.
What I did (and still sometimes do) is I took some pictures drawn by artists I like (:iconaerosocks: is one of them) and I would trace over them to help me learn anatomy and learn shapes of muscles and tendons. I also took some artist reference photos and traced over those to get a better understanding of human anatomy. One thing that always helps me to remember is that the crotch is halfway down the body and the knees are halfway down the legs. I can also give you a link to a GREAT abs tutorial that helped me once I got a better grasp of how a chest was shaped. [link]
If you do a lot of practicing from drawing photos of humans and drawing animal faces, that's kind of what I did. It's a lot of piecing together certain animal bits onto a human body, so the best thing I can recommend is to just practice human anatomy :)

Ok... thanks for the tips! :la:

it's just... i ultimately lie to myself and say, "I'm drawing a human that looks like an animal" but... I CAN draw people but I've drawn animals so often that their anatomy has been etched into my head and seeing them stand like a human, when I do it, NAGS at me; my brain screams at me to fix it and then they just look like an animal standing on its hind legs
