Once again sorry for my shitty explanations, I really suck at explaining things. I mean, I've been trying to teach my parents how to use chopsticks for 6 years, 6 goddamn years and still no results ;A; And sorry for bad quality of my sketches ;A;
I do have problems with showing the bottom of the shoe and I can't get the perspective right ( something like the 2nd and last picture of the bottom of the tutorial! ) and it's bothering me? Could you give some tips or maybe a small tutorial?
Oh boy, well if you'd ask me drawing bottom of the shoe is one of the most difficult things ever. I'm struggling myself to make them look good, BUT here's how I do it:
First, think of in which position do you want your feet to be and draw some simple lines. That's pretty easy, now comes the hard part: when you look at the bottom of the shoe you can basically draw it within a rectangle, right? BUT in most poses feet are at different angles, so you have to think of how would that rectangle look like when put into perspective. If you'd connect those blue lines from the second part they'll look more or less like a rectangle in a perspective.
Not sure if it was helpful or not, but I tried :"D Here's a piece of advice, if you don't know how to draw a shoe, just use one of yours as a reference, I do this all the time :"D
thank you for this! I practice and practice feet, but pop some shoes on there and its back to Frankenstein block feet! Just used this for one of my pic's that was sitting there lost without shoes, lol. Blank feet, yep it just stopped at the ankles because having a blank spot looked better then what I was coming up with until you popped up and saved her. Thanks!!!!!
Feet are not bricks.. well, mine might be brick now. XD I wear cycling shoes riding bike to college everyday, it got cleat to lock to pedal, and its contact pad is very stiff with metal frame inside. That's for efficient power transfer which is a trade-off of comfort. :s (it is quite comfortable on bike but not at all on walking)
Nice tutorial anyway. I almost forgot I used to wear flexible shoes. XD
