How to draw Cowboy Boots step by step

From their appearances in many classic western films to the very specific style and culture associated with them, many can’t seem to get enough of cowboys!

Cowboys can come in many different variations and sport many styles, but most cowboys will be wearing a trusty pair of cowboy boots.

How to draw Cowboy Boots

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below

Step 1 – Start with a basic sketch

The boots that we will depict in this tutorial on how to draw cowboy boots will be a classic design.
That means they will be quite tall and skinny, which is the design that most cowboy boots will follow!
First, use some slightly wavy lines with some circles on them to make the strap protrude from the inside of the boot.
Then you can draw the opening of the boot. This will be fairly flat and slightly inclined. The rim at the front of the boot will also have a deep indentation.
Remember to draw another strap on the other side of the rim! Finally, draw a slightly bumpy line for the back edge of this boot, then we can move on to step 2.

Step 2 – Now, draw the rest of the outline for this cowboy boot

We’ll be adding quite a bit to your cowboy boot drawing in this second step, so you can take it slow.
First, use some bumpier lines to extend the front and back edges of the boot. There will then be three straps connected together near the sole of the boot.
Finally in this step we will draw the sole of the boot. Another slightly bumpy line will be used to angle the front of the boot downward towards the toe.
Then there will be a fairly thick base layer at the bottom.
Do your best to reproduce our example image as closely as possible while drawing and then it will be time for step 3!

Step 3 – Draw some details for the boot

Usually, cowboy boots will be personalized with some detail on them and this detail can come in many different designs.
In this step by step tutorial on how to draw cowboy boots, we will add an interesting design drawn with many sharp curved lines to create a wavy pattern.
You can choose this design as well, but you can also add some of your own unique details if you like!

Step 4 – Next, draw the starting point of the second boot

It’s time to add a second boot to your cowboy boot drawing! To do this, all you need to do is repeat what you did on the first boot.
You can add the top half of the second boot and this will include the brim, straps and details. Then you’ll be ready to add the rest in the next step, so keep going!

Step 5 – Add the final details to your cowboy boot drawing

This step in our tutorial on how to draw cowboy boots will help you perfect the outlines and final details before moving on to the final step.
This will mainly entail drawing the toe of the shoe on the right side. You can start by drawing another strap using some slightly curved lines.
Then, draw the top and front of the boot and add the sole. This will make it look very similar to the shape of the boot on the left, so you can pretty much copy what you did there!
Once you have completed this initialization process, you can complete your own details and additions. Cowboy boots often have intricate details, so you can add some of your own to suit your taste.
You can also finish off by drawing a beautiful background and this would be a perfect way to complete the setting of these boots.

Step 6 – Complete your cowboy boots drawing with color

Cowboy boots can be made from many different materials, but they are usually made from leather.
In the final step of this drawing of cowboy boots, we will color the picture to better show what they can be made of.
In the reference image, we used some lighter grays and browns for the boots to give them a distressed leather look.
This is a step where you have a lot of freedom in how you color it.
You can use some darker browns for a more rugged leather look or combine your favorite lighter colors for a dyed look.
When painting, you can also achieve the look you want by varying the artistic mediums you use.
Acrylic paints or crayons are great for bolder colors, while watercolor paints and colored pencils are perfect for more muted tones.
