Hello dear artists! In today’s drawing lesson we will show you how to draw a ball. We will draw a classic soccer ball made of black and white hexagonal panels.
At first draw two perpendicular, straight as an arrow, lines. It will help us to draw the ball as smooth as possible. It will be perfect if you could draw these lines without a ruler.
Using the guidelines from the previous step draw a circle. Note, that it will be very good if you could draw the circle without compasses (as in tutorial about how to draw a clock).
Erase the guidelines. And you should get the circle in our example.
Continue to draw a ball. From this step we will start to draw the classic texture of a ball. At first, using straight lines draw a hexagon.
Now, using the same method as in the previous step draw a few more hexagons. Note, that a soccer ball has large and small panels. The white panels on a soccer ball slightly are larger than black panels.
Using the same method as in the previous steps draw the rest of the panels. Note that the panels which are closer to us are slightly bigger than those that are further away.
It remains the last step. Paint out the smaller panels using hatching. And using hatching add shadows as in our example. Note, that the shadows consist of several parts: cast shadow, reflected light, core shadow, light and highlight.
It was drawing lesson about how to draw a soccer ball step by step. We hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Stay tuned and wait for new drawing lessons by Drawingforall.net!
