Tails are ALWAYS centered at the base of the Coccyx and NOT at the Sacrum, or waistline, as they say.
It breaks the spinal column when drawn too high if you ask me. 8-)

I just wanna thank you for this!
Even though I already know all the stuff this simple tutorial covers, it seems a lot of people don't, and I get kind of irritated when people draw tails like they're connected to a pivoting ball or something.
IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY, PEOPLE.
So thank you for this.
I hope that more of these "tail illiterate" people see this!

I was very irritated with it as well especially when they were drawing pictures for me with my OC and Nighcrawler who have a tail, that's why I did this tutorial... I'm glad you agree xD Yey for education at tails drawing!

My thoughts for this in referrence to most bases I find: WHAT SPINE?!

...pffft! Sorry, had to get that out of my system. Your bases are awesome, by the way.

Lol, I agree. I have never drawn a tail on humans before, and I haven't thought of the ''follow the spine'' thing xD
