Learn how to draw a great looking Basketball with easy, step-by-step drawing  instructions, and video tutorial.

Begin by drawing a circle. This outlines the shape of the cartoon basketball.

Draw a curved line across the basketball positioned close to one side. This is the first of the ball's ribs, or recessed lines.

Draw a curved line that intersects the first line at a perpendicular angle, creating a second rib.

Draw a curved line from the side of the basketball to the vertical curved line, forming another rib.

Draw a curved line on the opposite side of the vertical line that continues the rib, attaching it to the edge of the ball.

Next, draw a curved rib line below the horizontal line, traveling from the side of the ball to the vertical rib line.

Continue the line on the other side of the vertical rib, extending to the side of the ball.

Draw a curved line parallel to the vertical and horizontal rib lines to give depth to the recessed lines and make the ball look 3D

Draw parallel curved lines to the upper and lower rib lines and erase the intersecting guide lines to create solid recessed lines.
