digitigrade legs help?

Alright, I'm building a female toa sized Character that needs werewolf style legs. I'm having trouble with the design of fully custom legs without the use or need for pistons.

I think that for this you'll need some of that reversal, 2-joits leg, with different proportions: the upper part the bigger, and the lower the thiner, and ending in the actual feet. In other words, try to mimic the back legs of a dog. New Hero factory joints can help a lot. And here are some examples of the reversal leg I'm talking about:

The first was most helpful, the others were too small or wouldn't look right. I've done legs like this before. Its just my designs thus far don't work for the character's body and overall sleeker design.

You either should use HF parts for the sleek design,or a custom leg design using a strong joint,depending on the size of the toa and how much poseability you want for it.
