Here’s a WIP look at the feet. 
You might have noticed that it’s flipped horizontally.  That can be a helpful shortcut for testing symmetry when doing digital work. When I used to do more work on paper I’d use a mirror to check it, but with photoshop it’s easy enough to flip it, work for a while, and then flip it back.
Feet have a really interesting shape to me.  I’m not happy with these yet, but I have always adored how much like a monkey appendage they are. Hands objectively resemble monkey hands but I always feel their humanness. Feet look less like monkey feet than our hands look like monkey hands, but something about them feels so primate.  They stick out like the ugly cousin of the body. The part of us meant for the dust.  I find them ugly but I love their primitive functional nature.
