Draw a Cowboy Boot

Here’s a new step by step tutorial for how to draw a cowboy boot. Not just any boot, but one with a spur and fancy details!

How to Draw a Cowboy Boot

The great thing about cowboy boots is that they can be the starting point for all kinds of fun drawings. Those that like to keep them simple and rugged can maybe focus more on shading, and those that are into fashion can push them in that direction with some extra fancy cutwork and stitches.

And if your students would like an extra challenge, encourage them to try a two-tone background. The sample above was made with two crayons that overlapped with some soft coloring in the middle. Who says you need pastels to make pretty gradations?

How to Draw a Cowboy Boot Materials

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
