Asha's Shoe Tutorial by Icecradle Asha's Shoe Tutorial by Icecradle
A dolling tutorial on shoes.

(NOTE: the tutorial was made in photoshop, but is not photoshop specific)

lots of people complain that they find dolling shoes difficult, so I thought I'd give a helping hand. =) I hope this is of some help!

all of the base feet were created by me

my dolls and bases can be found at Asha's Place:

please comment/review if you read the tutorial, I'd really like some feedback on it so I can make sure that my next tutorial is helpful. =)

please don't repost/reproduce this tutorial anywhere. Thanks.

Very (VERY!) helpful, thank you. I've always had trouble with shoes. I usually just lob off part of the foot to make them look like they'd fit into whatever I've created, lol. :)

Thank so much for this, it was really easy to read (although you might want to make the font a few sizes bigger just to make it easier to read) and made sense ^^

thanks for the comment! The sizing is something I've tried to address in my more recent tutorials and will definitely be something I bear in mind for future ones, so thanks for the feedback. =)

Hehe, well if you really want some critique, I'll say that if it were me I would increase the contrast, add some anti-aliasing, and use less saturated colors. But this is just me! =P

Very nice tutorial over though. I love it when I see people make tuts. I myself did not learn art from an art class (last one I took was in 6th grade) but from observing what people did in their artwork and reading tutorials. So props for taking the time out to help others.

I'm making a big fatty of a tutorial at the moment myself, but it's taking sooo long because it's literally what I do from the second I start mousing the lineart to the last pixel I add. FF FF FF.

I showed it immediately to a friend who just started dolling ^^ but I think, a tutorial like that was just missing, most people still draw shoes pretty weird on the base feet XD
I am sure it will be a big help to a lot of people :) I wished that it had existed earlier XD I had to learn drawing shoes the hard way >_> lol
