Foot Cheat 02 Point n Flex by BlackUniGryphon Foot Cheat 02 Point n Flex by BlackUniGryphon
To take the "Profile Foot" a step forward, we shall now Point & Flex the Foot/Toes.

This is most helpful in: Animation, Comic Books, Life Drawings


If you haven't learned the basics of the foot, please see Foot Cheat 01: [link]

*********************************************

Always remember to use curved lines to draw your feet (Female).
NEVER use squared lines, strait stiff lines, nor angles.

The technique which I'm teaching here is what is very common in traditional animation which is known as "Squash & Stretch" which some say was originally pioneered by Walt Disney himself. (That may or may not be entirely true tho'.)

For a more dramatics style you can play with exaggerating the curves, and the curvature of the feet.
In comic books, the pencilers often elongate the feet.

BEST REFERENCE: Using your own foot as a model, with or without a mirror is the best way to practice/learn drawing feet.
