How to Draw Feet and Shoes


Learning to draw involves learning a bunch of different techniques and building on these techniques. Feet are the foundation of every character ever drawn.

Things You'll Need

  • Drawing pencil
  • Drawing paper
  • Small tortillion

Drawing Feet Part 1

  • Draw a triangle with a rounded bottom and draw a upright cup with lines intersecting.

  • Add another column-like feature that branches out from the base of the triangle. Add a circular oval at the end.

  • Add five triangles coming off the circle.

  • Outline the foot you drew and erase the indicator lines.

  • Indicate your ankle lines and add nails to your toes.

  • Start with your dark tones and blend out into your midtones and lighttones with your tortillion.

Drawing Feet Part 2

  • Draw a half circle.

  • Draw an oval. Connect both the half circle and the oval with lines.

  • Draw five circles on top of your half circle.

  • Trace the outline and indicate foot, heel, and toe pads.

  • Start with your darktones and use your tortillion to blend to your midtones.

Drawing Shoes

  • Draw two rounded base triangles and draw two lines stemming from them.

  • Make the base of your triangle look 3D by drawing a curved line behind your base. Draw 3D blocks that stem from the base of your triangle.

  • Draw a line that wraps almost behind the blocks that you have drawn.

  • Add a secondary wavy line above the one you drew previously. Add the tops of your shoes. I have drawn the hightops here, but you can draw any kind of shoe that you want. Add half-circles to indicate the tongues of the shoes.

  • Erase the block you drew in step 2. Add shoelaces.

  • Shade the shoes.

Tips & Warnings

  • On the inside of the foot, curve the lines inside to mimic the shape of a real foot
  • Shoelaces can be added by drawing criss-crossing lines
  • Try decorating your shoes
