Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a shoe in life perspective. For this, we're going to draw two shoes walking. The first thing you want to do is look at the shape of your shoe. The shape of a shoe is a trapezoid with rounded points. So all you have to do is take this trapezoid and rotate it and distort it until you get it where you need it. So we're going to leave that there and draw your first shoe. It's going to be bent at the toe. So we'll draw a trapezoid bent where the toe is. So you draw a crease here for the bend, come down to your rounded point and then come back over. There's going to be a little curve here at the top of the shoe where the foot enters and that's it. We'll leave it like this for now and we'll go on to our second shoe. There's going to be a trapezoid, just rotate it and above the ground. So we'll draw a trapezoid here, come down, rounded point, rounded point and connect. And after you have these two outlines you can go back in and add detail. You want to come down here and follow this line to make an outline. You can shade that in for the sole of the shoe and we'll do the same thing on this side, shade that in. Then we'll add the tongue, the rest of the tongue here and lines for the laces and we'll do the same thing on this shoe, tongue and laces. Then after you have that, you can go back in and add some designs and get creative with it. I'm just going to add some curves here, shade those in, same thing on this side and we'll add a circle right at the top there. And lastly, we'll add our ground and some shadow. This one would be below this shoe and you can go back in and add some socks and legs if you'd like and that is it. That is how you draw shoes in life perspective. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
