How To Draw The Human Foot

In this video tutorial you can learn from this professional pencil artist how to draw a foot using just a black Prismacolor pencil crayon.

The video is only short but it holds all the basic principles required for you to learn how to draw the foot which is considered on eof the most complex parts of the human anatomy. He begins by very lightly drawing out the basic geometrical box dimensions which carry the basic proportions of the foot and this serves as a building block for him to add the more intricate details like the toes and ankle area.

The artist works quickly and exudes confidence with the pencil as he uses a mixture of faint and heavy pencil lines to slowly form the features of the foot. He draws each section evenly by moving the pencil across the page making sure he doesn’t get too engrossed in one certain region. By doing this you can quickly lose the proportions of your drawing and have spent an awful lot of time and detailing focusing on one particular aspect of the drawing.

The artist uses faint guidelines to mark out his areas and is adding shade and tonal qualities in a cross hatch form just as quickly as he is drawing the form lines to create a realistic interpretation of the foot. The way he holds the pencil is also unique but also much easier when you are sketching in this manner. It allows a more fluid and organic flow across the paper with the pencil and rapidly speeds up the drawing on the whole. If you are interested in learning to draw the human anatomy in more detail then this particular artist is a great source to learn from. He is confident, accurate, quick and unorthodox and is living proof that with practice and some basic principles you can easily learn how to draw the human form or any of its features.

    1. Actually, this is proper sketching technique, the same one used by professional artists for centuries. It prevents smudging and also offers a wide range of strokes and lines that would be physically impossible to achieve if you hold your pen/pencil in the “handwriting position”. Most novices will intuitively use the same holding technique for both handwriting and drawing. It’s one of the first habits that profs/teachers try to break in new students.
