Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a 3D soccer ball. We're going to start off with a circle. I would suggest starting off with a light pencil to get the outline of your circle and then go back in with a darker pencil or an ink like a marker or a pen and outline your circle when you have it finalized. So once you have your circle, we're going to be drawing two shapes inside. The first one is going to be a pentagon which is a five sided shape like that and then surrounding it are going to be five hexagons, six sided like that. So we'll start off by drawing our pentagon in the very center and we'll color that in. You can use whatever color you'd like for this and then once we have that in the center, we're going to draw lines coming from each point like this and these are going to be our hexagons. So we'll draw five hexagons surrounding the pentagon and try to make them all similar, all lines on each side of your hexagon, the same length and all your hexagons the same size. It might be kind of difficult at first but you'll get the hang of it. So once we have that we can go in and draw some more pentagons where they come to a point like this. We're going to draw a pentagon and color that in, one over here and one up top and one more right here. Then all the other shapes are going to be hexagons. So that's the basic formula for drawing a 3D soccer ball. Once you have that you can go in and add some shading and some texture. These will be beveled a little bit so you can draw some lines at the corners to help show that they are beveled. And that's it. That is how you draw a 3D soccer ball. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
