How to Draw Shoes for a Fashion Sketch

Learn how to draw shoes for a fashion sketch from fashion designer Garo Sparo in this Howcast video.


Whenever you're doing any kind of fashion illustration, you should definitely think about shoes. In every croquis that I do, I create the foot already in the shoe position. And I love a platform. It never really goes out of style. Women love to be tall. So I build in a platform, the front of the shoe you figure out later. But you always want to give a side view of the foot. This particular shoe I'm going to do a very severe wedge on. Why not? The great thing about drawing shoes is you can really let your mind go and just have lots of fun with it. You always want to think about where it's going to connect to the back of the foot. And then once you have your side view completed, you then can do your front view. And you just want to look at your side view first and then just create that line. And think about whether you want it to be a pointy shoe, a square toe shoe, et cetera, et cetera. And that is a quick and easy way to draw shoes.
