In the picture, you can see a soccer ball, which is traditionally made in black and white. The ball consists of individual pieces of leather that are securely stitched together. Each black piece is in the shape of a pentagon and each white piece is in the shape of a hexagon.
In this lesson, you will need to be able to make straight lines, because all the elements of the ball are made up of short, straight lines. It is also very important to draw an even circle for the outer contour of the ball. During the lesson, be patient and accurate, then you will get an excellent result.
