Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a shoe sole. We're going to start off by drawing half an oval. So we'll draw a straight line down here and curve out and connect to make our half oval. And this is going to be the heel of the shoe. Then we're going to curve up and then curve down to where the big toe would be which would be up here, come to a rounded point and then curve down and go across and we're going to stop right here, draw a straight line down and then connect to make the bridge of the shoe and shade that in. And once you have this, we're going to add some texture on the bottom for some tread and for that, there's a lot of different designs but we can draw some small rectangles across the bottom here on the heel and the same thing for the rest of the sole. And that is it. It kind of looks like a bean but you're just following the basic shape of the foot. Your curve here and your toe, the big toe and come down. And some shoe soles will look a little bit different but this is the basic shape, and that's it. That is how you draw a shoe sole. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
