    I find both hard to draw without reference.

    Oh, undoubtedly. What I mean is, if I look at hand references and foot references, I'm more likely to butcher feet either way.

    I think we're more used to seeing our hands and it's definitely easier to pose your own hand for reference. You don't see bare feet often and they're just not a thing we naturally observe being so far below eye level. They are also really funky shaped and distort in ways that at times don't look natural in differing stances, so...yeah...feet are tough.

    If it makes you feel better, so do some professional comic book artists.

    @mathmaster74 that's very likely part of it. Plus the perspective is a complete and utter pain very often. Even if a character is just standing normally.

    You can hide them under the boots or socks though.

    That's true. In which case you don't need to worry about toes. There's still the matter of perspective, though....

    idk, drawing feet had always been a fun thing to me. but lately i've been drawing hands better than feet, and that feels... bizarre.

    Boots/Shoes perspective is still easier than hands most of the time though.
