DeviantArtist Questionnaire1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?DeviantArtist Questionnaire by AbyLockhart
I've been on dA for for 9 years, on my way to 10 years (in November).
2. What does your username mean?
It's just a name I picked for myself. I usually go by Abigail Lockhart, but as a joke I shorten it to Aby or Abylockhart. A misspelled version of Abby, because people always remember your mistakes more than your properly typed words/names.

I don’t have my laptop, and there’s nothing to do.”
I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,
Then descended upon the keyboard and wrote with a flair:
“Dear Friend, did you not get DA’s early present?
We now have an app, and it won’t cost you one cent!
“On, Watch Feed! On, Browse! On, Explore! On, Today!

How to Draw Manga! Feet Introduction
Like hands, feet are an important part of drawing a full body of any character. Whether the feet are in shoes or just free the basic shape of a foot can vary for any given person. The anatomy of the foot is the same, but the shape, width and length varies. Even toe length can be variable of each foot!
See Tips and Tricks: Hands
Feet, like hands are also are made up of segments, muscles and skin over the bones. Feet have a basic blockish shape that is then used to form the circle model of the shapes a little more. This is shown the in the following example, using these basic shapes help define the aspects of the foot. Toes whilst not as expressive as fingers can splay out in a similar manner and the amount of variation in individuals comes down to their toe shapes and the height of their arc
