how to draw
Creating a sphere can be tricky when you attempt it the first time. As with all of our tutorials, we find that it is best to take it slowly and set everything up before jumping into the shading.
draw the base
Simply draw a large blank circle shape right in the center of your canvas. Y
ou can use a compass or a round object as a base for your circle.
It is important to create a visual field around your sphere. We do this by drawing a simple vertical line through the bottom third of the circle.
To create a more realistic perspective, we are now going to erase the vertical line that overlaps within the outline of your sphere sketch.
FIRST LAYER OF
Use the side of a very soft pencil to gently shade the interior of your sphere drawing, leaving light patches of white throughout.
Using the same pencil and the same shading method as you did for the sphere, begin to add a light shadow below the perspective line.
SHADE WITH A
To create this highlighted spot, add another light layer of shading within the sphere, leaving this light spot a little barer.
LAYER OF SHADE
Add the darker shadow close to the perspective line and the shaded sphere, and gently blend it out to the first layer of shading.
Simply repeat the process of the previous step, adding another layer of shading within the sphere and on the left side of the perspective line.
You can darken the edges of the sphere and the point of the perspective line on the very left of the sphere quite a lot. Make sure that you blend the dark shadow into the lighter layers smoothly.
You are going to erase the outlines of the sphere and perspective line, and add some final touches of highlight to the center of the shaded sphere.
