Probably the most popular sport in the US, drawing a cartoon football seems to be a natural choice! The Superbowl is the biggest sport event in North America! The ads are sold for 3 or 4 million dollars!
So why not pay a tribute to all athletes practicing this sport by drawing a football in this six steps drawing lesson!
Start your artwork by drawing a nice and long oval shape. Don't sketch it too thin or too thick! Try to keep a great balance between both!
Continue your football by drawing a long and curved horizontal line. This line should touched each end of your oval shape. Then, draw two stripes on the upper part of your object. Keep some room in the middle to add the stitches.
Add these stitches by drawing a long and thin horizontal rectangle. Then, draw a couple of vertical lines to create the stitches.
Work on the outline of your shape. Notice that both ends are slightly curved towards the inside.
Add a brown color to your football.
Finally, to make the whole thing more attractive, sketch some shadows under the ball and under the stitches. You can also add a grey tone one the stripes.
Congratulations! You've just created a cool football. I hope you had fun drawing this object and don't forget to practice over and over again. Fun more illustrations related to sports can be found below. Have fun with these additional resources. :)
