What is your favorite ball game? We love American soccer and football. In our previous drawing lessons, we taught the drawing process of a soccer ball and now we’ll demonstrate the drawing process for an American soccer ball.
The first step is to draw our ball’s shape to form the shape of an oval. Make sure that the lines of the ball as symmetrical as is possible. Remember that the lines need to be as light as possible in the beginning steps.
With the aid of a lengthy and slightly curving line, we draw the central seam of the football. The lines drawn in this stage are also light enough, as, in the near future, we’ll make some adjustments to this American design of football.
With the aid of small lines, we draw the outline of our laces. When drawing the laces, you should draw your lines with a light touch. Also, the best traditional advice received from artists at Drawingforall.net is to review your drawing in the mirror to see all the mistakes in the proportions.
Remove all lines that are not needed from the drawing. Then, with the aid of dark and clear lines, draw every detail that makes up the soccer. At the same time make small stitches with small lines.
This is the final stage, where we have to add shadows onto the ball’s surface. The first step is to find the source of light, and then apply shadows to the ball using the help of hatching. If your illustration of American football is like ours, then you’re on the right path, and you’re now ready to move on to the final, fifth step in the lesson on drawing the perfect American football.
