Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw overlapping shoes. The shape of a shoe is very similar to a trapezoid with rounded points. So we're going to take this shape to make our shoes. We'll draw our first shoe at an angle. We'll draw a curved line for the top of the shoe where the foot enters. We'll come down, draw a little crease for the toe area, round it off and curve up towards the back and then curve down a little bit for the heel and connect. We'll go down here for the sole and follow this same line all the way across and then we can shade that in really quick and we're going to go back up here and draw the tongue sticking up a little bit and then we'll add some design to the shoe, draw a curved line across here, have that coming down and then curve up to connect to where the tongue is. Then we'll draw another line curving up following that shape and then we'll curve down here and have it close off right there, we'll shade that in, shade this in a little bit. Then we'll add some ovals where the laces will end up, going all the way up and then the actual laces, curved rectangles leading into those ovals, just like that and you can design these shows however you'd like. I'm going to add some thread following this line and a circle for a design right there and some shoes have tags that stick out at the back like that. Okay now we're going to draw our second shoe, the second shoe is going to be behind it right here facing more forward. So we're going to start off with the tongue, curve back a little bit for the back of the shoe and we'll shade that in and follow that line and then just curve down a little bit. It's going to be behind it right there and a little bit of the front will come out down here. Then we're just going to copy what we did for this shoe and put it onto this shoe. It's going to follow this line to make this border and shade that in and then add the tongue and the laces curved rectangles and the ovals and then the designs that you had put in, just like that. So all you really have to do is take a trapezoid and distort it just a little bit because that's all a shoe really is is a trapezoid, same thing with the foot. You just add toes, an ankle, curve and the bottom and move to the heel and then add the leg on top. So that's it, that is how you draw overlapping shoes. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
