How To Draw A Classic Football?

An old-fashioned football is made up of 12 pentagons (the black patches) and 20 hexagons (the white patches) in a specific order and pattern. But do you know how to draw a football? Here are a few simple steps to doing it!

What to do?

First, take a piece of paper and a pen. Start by drawing a pentagon

Then, draw 5 lines outward from the corners of the pentagon

Now construct 6 complete hexagons around the pentagon

At the outer triple junctions draw another 5 complete pentagons

Complete the ball by drawing 5 curved lines to form a circle 

Shade the pentagons to form a classic version of a football 

Check out this video. Let's try drawing a football!
