# FAQ: How To Draw A Foot Step By Step?

## How to Draw Feet – the Easy Step-by-Step Guide

We’ll go over this method with multiple examples, and there are some demo videos to help you get it right. Drawing the feet involves breaking up the foot into three basic geometric shapes, drawing in the arch of the sole, and then further refining the drawing with organic lines.

### Step One – Break Down the Foot Into Three Simple Parts

Break up the heal into a separate section, as it steps out from the leg as it descends. Drawing of the sole of the foot: 1) abstraction, 2) simplification, and finding the arch (shaded in) 3) drawing. 4) refining the drawing

### Step Two – Add the Arch to the Middle Section of the Foot

As your foot lands on the ground, the arch slows and distributes the amount of force applied to the foot by your weight, acting as a shock absorber. When drawing in the arch of the foot, pay attention to where the curve begins and ends on your reference.

### Step Three – Draw in the Bony Pointy Bits on Each Side

The base of the tibia and the fibula are bony bits that stick out on each side of the foot; they are important landmarks; locate them and indicate them on the simplified geometric drawing you made in step 1. The fibula’s pointy bit is lower than the tibia’s, so draw it that way.

### Step Four – Use the Underdrawing of the Foot as a Guide

Step-by-step instructions on how to draw the basic structure of the human foot; the arch of the foot is often hidden in the lateral view and should therefore be drawn subtly. If you need some drawing references, visit my Pinterest page here.

### Pay attention to the rotation of the foot

The ‘hoof joint,’ or joint between the foot and ankle, articulates up (1) and down (3), but it can also roll (4) side to side or in opposite directions (5).

### Pay attention to the shape of the foot

To make the drawing easier, a difficult foot angle is first simplified into basic shapes.

### How to Draw Feet Well – Final Thoughts

Drawing the foot is much easier if you first simplify its irregular shape into simple geometric shapes; in addition, find good reference to draw from, and you’ll be well on your way to drawing feet!

## How do you make a paper footprint?

Hold your baby’s foot by their ankle over the paper and press the foot heel first onto the paper, using your spare hand to gently press your baby’s toes down. Remove your baby’s foot right away and examine the little print you’ve created.

## What footprint means?

1: an imprint of the foot on a surface. 2 a: the area on a surface covered by something, such as a tire with a large footprint or a laser beam’s footprint. b: range of operation (as a service) a global footprint. 3: a notable effect, impression, or impact in the field of research, such as a tire with a large footprint.
