Feet by Terrizae Feet by Terrizae
I used to think that hands were the bane of my artistic existence. After a lot of practice I see that that is not the case- hands are complicated, but doable. Now feet, those are the bane of my artistic existence. After this exercise in life drawing I've decided that the human foot is one of the most awkward looking things on the face of this planet, and they're even worse for me personally because, as an animator, I need to be able to define things with just lines- feet don't have lines. You get the misshapen block around the edge and maybe toes on an animated character, nothing else, and even if it's proportionate and technically correct it still looks weird because you don't have the shadows that really make up the shape.

Despite my general frustration with feet I'm rather proud of this one. This is also my first foray into realsim with conte crayons- I don't hate them as much as I expected to, given my usual dislike for pastel-type mediums. They blend nicely, yet are still hard enough to get some sharp edges. Once I figured out what I was doing I actually kinda liked them.

feet... the new hands!

It only takes exposure to the subject and practice until you find YOUR 'the right way' to draw/animate feet correctly. You'll find it somewhere.

They turned out nice! LOVE IT!! :D I also love the way you drew the fabric. We don't want any floating feet now.

Haha, I actually like hands and feet. And noses too. I seem to like all the things that most people hate.

The colors on these look good- I like the warm tones against the cool paper. Your model has nice feet, whoever they are, too. xD

Hands are growing on me- I still find them challenging, but in a good way, not an "omg this is freakin' impossible" way like I used to.:XD:

Thank you! :)
