Hi, I'm Al Krakosky, and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you some techniques on how to draw a bouncing ball. If the ball were up here, thrown down, it'd follow this curve, hit the floor, which is going to be right here, curve up - not as high, curve down, and the curves will get smaller as it goes and it loses momentum. We're going to draw a circle for the ball, and you're going to see two transformations. The further down it gets, right before it hits the ground, it's going to stretch and turn into an oval. And, once it hits, it's going to be squished and turn into a horizontal oval, and then back to the vertical oval, and then back into the circle, following the shape and the line that we had drawn, and back into horizontal oval, vertical. You just follow that same formula all the way. You draw some motion lines in there, and that's all you need to know. You could do some flip books, some animations with this, and have some fun with it. That's it. That is how you draw a bouncing ball thank you for watching, and keep on drawing.
