What kind of leg are you looking at kama? I would suggest learning anatomy- it's really handy. Then lots of practice!

Try Doing A Slight Line, Then For The Knee, Twirl The Pencil To Make It Curve Out And Look More Real... Then Make The Calves A Little Skinny-Er Then The Thighs Down To The Knees, Then If They're Bare Foot, Just Draw Ze Foot, And Woolah! XD

Baggy pants is a good idea. Also, for a more stylized leg (especially for females) you can basically draw two tall, thin triangles with the points touching in the middle (the knee).

It all depends on how you draw, personally i never got into drawing simple shapes and starting from there. In fact I am not very good at drawing humans from the top of my head...

...though I will admit that I have gotten better after drawing other people. As Sonny said, sketch other people's legs.

Learning about anatomy is a thing you should do in your spare time. I took anatomy class thinking it would help me become familure with the human body (which in turn would help me draw it better) but to be honest, it was a bloody mistake >.< If you want to learn about human anatomy go to a local library or something and do not take any classes unless your good at that type of stuff or your going into the medical feild.
