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!
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?
