Tips

  • Make big drawings. The very small ones will look like a fake or in the wrong place.
  • It may take a few tries to get the design right, as it is not mathematically possible to draw a perfect soccer ball.
  • Traditional soccer balls have black pentagons and white hexagons, but you can mix styles and colors to make your model unique.
  • Sketch the lines freehand to make it look more beautiful and realistic.
  • It can be very frustrating trying to make a perfect soccer ball. Remember to go slow and take a deep breath.
  • Do not hurry! Take it easy and it will be worth it!
  • A good way to work with shadows is to make a soft shadow in the area that wouldn't be hit by the light with a pencil and then use your pinky to spread the color.

Notices

  • Don't force the pencil at first, just lightly sketch the initial attempt. Once you're done and good, you can reinforce the lines.
  • Avoid drawing formats that are too small; they should take up a lot of space on the ball.
  • Be careful not to blur the design.
  • If you finished the design and it didn't look as good as you wanted, try again!
  • Don't make the pentagon too big or the soccer ball will look weird.
