So sit back, relax and create some beach fun as you work on this step-by-step guide on how to draw a beach ball in just 6 steps.
How to Draw A Beach Ball – Let’s Get Started
To begin this guide on how to draw a beach ball, we shall start with the outline for the ball. As you may imagine, this means that we will be drawing a circular shape.
This doesn’t have to be a perfect circle, but if you would like to create a perfect one then you could use a tool such as a drawing compass to easily draw on.
Otherwise, try your best to slowly draw the closest thing you can to a perfect circle.
Beach balls are usually slightly irregular in their shape, so that’s why it doesn’t really matter if it doesn’t end up being a perfect circle.
However you end up drawing it, once this circle is complete you will then be ready to proceed to the second step of the guide!
Step 2 – Next, draw the first details for the beach ball
A beach ball is almost always decorated by having various segments on it. We shall start drawing these details in this second part of your beach ball drawing.
For now, we shall focus on the detailing on the left-hand side of the ball. To do this, simply draw a circle on the upper left-hand side of the ball.
Then, draw a series of curved lines coming off of this circle. For now, we shall be drawing four of these curved lines.
One will come out from the bottom of the circle, another will extend up and then the other two will go towards the left.
Then it will be on to step 3!
Step 3 – Now, draw another line for the detailing
We will keep things simple in this third step of our guide on how to draw a beach ball. We will be adding just a bit more to the line detailing on the ball that you started in the previous step.
All you need to do is draw another curved line extending from the top of the small circle and extend it all the way to the right-hand side of the beach ball.
Try to follow the curvature of the lines that we used in our reference image if you can! Then we can keep adding to the detailing in the next part.
Step 4 – Next, draw the final line of the detailing
This fourth part of your beach ball drawing will see you adding the final line detail for the ball. To complete the segments of the beach ball, simply draw one more of those long, curved lines.
This will fill in the last space left in the ball and will complete the detailing nicely.
Once you have finished drawing all of the segments of the beach ball, we will then be ready to add the final details and touches in the fifth step, so let’s move on to that!
Step 5 – Add the final details to your beach ball drawing
Before you color your creation in, we first have a few final details to add in this step of our guide on how to draw a beach ball.
These details will seem pretty minor, but they will make a big difference! Simply draw some lines running parallel to the segment lines that you have been drawing so far.
These lines will angle sharply when they reach the inner edge of the beach ball outline as well. Once these are drawn, you can then add some more details of your own!
One idea to do would be to draw a background.
The obvious choice would be to draw an awesome beach setting, and this would be a great chance for you to show what other toys and objects you would enjoy with this beach ball on the beach!
Step 6 – Finish off your beach ball drawing with color
Beach balls will usually have some bright and interesting colors decorating them, and that’s why we shall add some colors to your beach ball drawing in this final step!
In our reference image, we used some red, yellow and blue for some sections of the ball while using some greys and whites for the segments in between.
You could go for some similar colors for your own drawing, but this would also be a great chance to incorporate some of your own favorite colors.
This is your chance to let your creativity flow, so have fun with it and see what happens!
