Drawing of a Football

Football Tutorial Video

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.

Working with Drawing Guides

The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing project is to show them how to use guides as a reference point. You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have center guides that are showing as both a vertical line and a horizontal line. If students make lines like those on their own paper, before drawing, they will have some extra help in seeing where to begin their drawing.

Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate. So does that mean students need to use their pencil to draw big fat lines down the center of their paper before they start? No, simply fold the paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
