Drawing of a Football

This tutorial shows exactly how to draw a football with some important details added. Most students are familiar with the basic shape of a football, but they might get stumped when getting ready to add the finishing details. The white stripes on the ends and the stitch lines in the middle are important and will go a long way in making a much more realistic looking football.

Drawing things like a football, basketball or baseball is a great idea for students elementary school. Most are already familiar with what they look like, they just need help in learning how to turn a flat shape into something more dimensional. Well-placed seam lines, stitch lines and color lines can make all the difference in the world.
