Drawing Prompts: Shoes

 1. Imagine you’re a bird looking down at someone’s shoes. Draw what you see. 2. Draw your shoe from three different angles. 3. Imagine you’ve just stepped in something sticky (eww!). You realize that you’re stuck to the ground, and when you look down, there’s something oozing out from under your shoes. Draw your shoes in that sticky ooze! 4. Think of a new sport and draw the kind of shoes you would need to wear for it. 5. Draw a pair of shoes that would be impossible to wear. 6. Imagine that you’re a superhero. Draw your superhero shoes. 7. Draw a pair of shoes that would smell incredible. 8. Trace your shoe. Now turn it into something completely different. 9. Draw a pair of shoes in a shoebox. 10. Draw a pair of shoes in an environment where they would be out of place.
