Easy How to Draw a Soccer Ball Tutorial and Soccer Ball Tutorial

Soccer, also called football in many countries, is a game in which two teams of 11 players, using any part of their bodies except their hands and arms, try to get the ball into the opposing team’s goal. Only the goalkeeper is permitted to use theirs and hands and may do so only within a specific area near the goal. The team that scores more goals wins. With about 4 billion followers, soccer is by far the most watched sport on the entire planet!

Soccer balls are a little more complex to draw than a basketball or football, thanks to all their hexagon shapes. Some more thought is involved, but that’s not to say it can’t be done with a little help. This tutorial directs students in how to start their pattern with a center hexagon, and then gradually work out until their entire ball is filled with a pattern. 

Bonus Tip: Color the black hexagon shapes first with a black crayon, and then trace the other seam lines with a light gray crayon. The result is a nice subtle shadow that gives the ball slightly padded look.
