Tutorial: Feet and Shoes by *Tyshea -- Suggester's words: I myself have always had trouble drawing feet and shoes, and so they never look right. I know many other artists that are the same way. This tutorial has been very helpful and informative, and I think that the whole community should get a chance to view it. :meow:

Tutorial: Feet and Shoes


I can't believe this little thing got a DD!
Holy crap, I'm really blown away by all this, haha
I'm so happy to help though, thank you everyone for all the positive feedback!
I might not get to replying messages, so I am showing my appreciation here

:heart: :heart: :heart:

God, I've had this sitting around for a couple months, sorry about that!
it's a little messy and long (or maybe too short...fff :|;; ), but I hope it helps!

I'm not so good at these tutorial layouts...I think live-streaming sounds more up my alley.
I'll let you guys know if I start up a channel! :)

Thank you so much - I've always sucked at shoes and feet, so this has been a great help :)

no problem, i'm glad it could help out!!
Thanks for the tutorial! The way you've explained blocking out the foot with simple shapes helps a great deal - I struggled with moving onto the rough positioning of the toes etc. from there, but keeping in mind what you've said about the structure, I've found studying the google image result of foot bone structure helps bridge the gap I encountered.  Cheers again for the tips and tricks - looking forward to taking on the shoes section...

You're welcome!! One of the biggest roadblocks artists face is learning how to "see" and break down the photo and life references. Taking it in with the eye is one thing, you need to have a deeper understanding of the mechanics and construction to really GET it
Good luck and keep going!
