What part of that tutorial didn't work for you?  And do you have any photos of what you'd like to create?  And what skill sets do you have, that could be used to achieve your goal?  The tutorial honestly looks pretty complete and workable to me, if that's the look you're going for.  If you want something subtler, though, it's not the avenue to take.

well, i used a foam with bumpiness, which didn't work, and i can't figure out how to sculpt the top of the foam. I want feet kind of like in that tutorial, as in large feet. I have no problem with anything that involves large amonts of sewing.

In that case, why not treat it like a pillow or a stuffy?  You could probably even use a pattern for a stuffy just blown up a lot (maybe the poppet pattern?)  Sew the form first, then stuff it with batting.  Maybe?

yeah, i thought to do something like that. but would i need 3 pieces, the foot for a poppet is two, but then it shrinks a lot, so i'll probably need three pieces. But i HATE sewing the bottom of a foot because i always get it crooked.
drafting a pattern for it is no problem because i'm skilled in that area, i just need ideas.

Yeah, I'd do it in three pieces.  And if you clip your seams before you sew, I find that to be easier.  That, or run a gathering stitch just outside the seam line of the bottom.
