Perhaps one of the most popular sport in the world, you will learn how to draw a cartoon soccer ball in this easy, seven steps tutorial! And don't ask yourself why this great sport is so popular in many countries! You only need some shoes and a ball to play at it (goals are great, but optional!). Let's start with the video version of this lesson. The written version is located below the video. :)
First, draw a big circle. Your shape doesn't need to be perfect. Don't hesitate to take the whole area!
Next, sketch two lines to locate the center of your shape.
Continue working on your object by drawing an hexagon in the center of it. You'll notice later that the white areas are made of hexagons while the black ones are made with pentagons.
Like I said in the previous step, the black areas are made with pentagons. Draw three pentagons (they must touched a side of the first hexagon) like shown in the image above.
Filled the ball with other hexagons and pentagons. Try to maintain the same pattern.
Next, fill all the pentagons with a black tone.
If you feel like it, you can also add some great lighting effects to your drawing. Your ball will look more convincing that way! Great! You are done! Congratulations! I hope you had fun illustrating this great piece of equipment! You can also try to draw a more challenging illustration if you want to: a soccer player! After all, this ball must be used by someone! ;)
