The foot, together with the hand and face are considered to be one of the hardest areas of the human body to depict in a figure drawing. In the case of the foot it is the number of “moving parts” that make it appear to be difficult to draw. However, your figure sketch will come together as you look at the foot through simple shapes and learn about the functionality of these “moving parts.” Doing so removes the initial difficulty to a great degree. Once there is an understanding of the foot, figure drawings of the hand are the next step.
This video is from figure drawing instructor Robert Stollar, a self-taught sculptor with a passion for figure drawing. A passion and, of course, a necessity. He lives in Sydney, Australia with his beautiful wife and three dogs, working as a sculptor and teaching figure drawing.
For those who cannot attend his classes in person Robert has an online version of the lectures at Figure Drawing Online.
