“Who would want to draw feet?!”

…Ok yeah, this is most definitely not the most popular subject for doodling. But hey, we decided to give drawing feet a try. Art is about challenges and going to where no-man-goes. Plus, think about it, every one of us has feet! You can’t ignore the pair of buddies you have that takes you everywhere! The other thing why this drawing tutorial is important: feet is one of those things that should be easy…but is actually really awkward and difficult to draw. Just like hands. When I started out drawing feet, they looked more like wet flippers. I practiced drawing hands until I was comfortable…but feet? Hmm, this is actually my best doodle so far. Feet are tricky, so we better start right away!

  • How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
  • Sketching Pencil
  • Polymer Eraser
  • Outline Marker
  • Coloring Tools

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Draw Feet

  1. Draw a vertical line curving diagonally to the left. Then, parallel to it, draw a shorter vertical line also curving its way to the left sideways.
  2. Connect the lines using five curved lines starting on the right side – bigger to smaller curves. 
  3. The first step gives you the outline of your foot. The size may vary depending on how you like to present your foot – big or small, long or short.
  4. Add details by drawing five tiny rectangular nails of different sizes on the fingers. The bigger finger should have bigger nails and so on. 
  5. Repeat steps one and two to complete your pair of feet, but this time, the right foot is facing the opposite side. 
  6. Let’s color the feet according to your skin complexion. Everything depends on you, I skipped on nail polish but you can go wild. What about an ankle bracelet too? Just some ideas for you to get creative!
