Directly following the wildly popular Hands 101 (through 103) series by Joshua Taback, today we take a look at those mysterious “hands of the legs” the feet! Special thanks to Kev Craven for setting up this series with Josh.

Josh runs the highly educational “Drawniveristy:” A website dedicated to one-on-one advising of drawing techniques and skills. (You can check out more from Drawniversity here.) Kev is the mastermind behind the @Cackphrase game on Twitter. I was fortunate enough to put the two in touch when Kev had a particular question regarding animated feet such as those in Warner Brothers cartoons.
