Feet. Everyone talks about how hard it is to draw hands, but to my mind…feet.

I don’t know how to think about feet. I can’t figure out what the big shapes are, and I always exaggerate the toes because at least they’re interesting.

Rookie mistake, that — making the interesting bits way too big.

It probably doesn’t help that I have gnarly, unpleasant feet. Maybe if I spent more time staring at nice feet…I’d be mistaken for a foot fetishist and run out of town.

Are there women foot fetishists? Women don’t seem big on fetishes.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Look, I’m just an average ordinary observer of art (more or less, for certain values of average & ordinary)., but it’s clear to me that you do a REALLY good job of drawing anatomical stuff. I understand artistic self-doubt. . .I just wish you’d pay attention to your commenters. Have you some sycophants? Likely. But, seriously. . .you’ve also got a lot of fairly tough-minded folks who mostly tell it like it is. OK.We might not say nasty things even if we thought you weren’t very good. . .but we WOULDN’T say laudatory things we didn’t mean.
Cowboy up and accept it: you’re good. Actually, you’re DAMNED good!

To me, it’s about conveying mass and pressure — making the feet show the weight they bear… So, they compress and sag and press, and in that way they express something of energy or fatigue … not just representing or depicting what they are, but what their connection to the whole is…

Don’t be afraid to have a foot fetish. It’s pretty common, and not at all sicko. I’m not one myself, and I’ve only known one in my whole life. He was rather challenged in his fetish, as he was a severe dyslexic. He kept getting off on the wrong foot.

In addition to the buttons for up or down votes, I think you might need to add a groan button, or maybe facepalm.

Can’t Hark’s comment seconded. I just wish my “poor” artwork could be as scrappy as yours.

Is it better when we say it that way.

I have oft heard it said that artists revel their true selves through their art, albeit subconsciously.

Here we observe that Weasel has drawn her foot with perfectly trimmed nails.

I cannot wait to nick drew458’s joke and work it into my next conversation that involves fetishes…which are few despite what LesterIII might have shared with you….

No, Swease, women are not really capable of developing a foot fetish.

Men’s feet are gross and stinky, while women’s feet are… OH MY GOD! Look at those SHOES!!! IDONTCAREWHATTHEYCOST!!! IGOTTAHAVETHEM!!!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
