You Will Need
- A graphite pencil
- A simple low-heeled shoe
- An eraser
Draw simple shape
Draw a rectangle, narrowing one end to establish the side view of a basic shoe, noting that most types of shoes fit into this boxy shape.
Refine the outline
Refine the outline of your shoe, making sure to clearly reflect the curve where the shoe surrounds the ankle.
Add heel and outsole
Draw a short rectangle for the heel, positioning it below the left edge of your original rectangle. Add a thin rectangle from the toe to the heel, connecting them.
Add details, including stitching, laces, lace eyes, and decorations such as buckles, straps, and fabric design.
Erase guidelines and shade
Erase unwanted guidelines and shade shadowed areas of the shoe. Now, to make sure your drawing is more than a footnote, frame it!
