This piece showcases my favourite pair of shoes, my Steve Madden boots. I wanted to illustrate these because they have taken me around the world and seen many places. You can tell a lot about a person through their footwear and how they are maintained. This realistic drawing was drawn simply with pencil crayons and a touch of fine liner. Not only have these shoes taken me miles, but they were and are still one of my favourite shoe designs. Attention to detail in the image was imperative in order to produce a bold and realistic fashion statement. I focused in on every shadow and wrinkle on the leather, snaps, knit lining, and threaded laces. They needed character, and to truly look like my boots that have taken me more places than I can even remember.
