The key to drawing shoes on any foot is to determine the
view (eye level, down view, etc.), what position they are,
and what shoe the person is wearing. Below is a line of
eye level feet in different positions. If you are uncertain
how to draw the foot, check out the Feet
The first row shows the most common feet positions from
dead-on forward, quarter, and combination of forward &
parallel, and quarter & parallel. Notice that the ankle
height is high compared to the ground. This is great for
drawing feet with heels. If you're going to draw feet with
flat soles, just lower the level of the ankle compared to
Below it is a row of the same feet with shoes drawn on it.
What you basically do is draw the foot outline, draw the
shoe over it, and erase the foot outline. A closer example
if shown below:
Views of the foot is not limited to eye level and can come
from above. Here we have two other views generally drawn
from an angle and straight down view.
Once you get the hang of these three factors, drawing any
shoe is a cinch!
