Step 16: Draw the leg on the other side the same way but don't overlap the lines for the first leg. Most of the leg and shoe will be hidden behind the basketball player's first leg, so only draw the visible portion. Make the shape of the shoe wide at the top. Only a small part of the shoe's tip should be visible below the first leg.
Step 17: Now add the extra details on the basketball player. Start by drawing a couple of intersecting lines to the ball similar to a plus sign. Draw a curved line to the top and bottom of the basketball to complete its design. Draw a number in front of the shirt. I picked 7, but you can pick your favorite basketball player's number. Make the number thick and bold. Add some long lines to the side of the shirt and shorts. If you'd like, you can look up your favorite basketball team's uniform and try to duplicate its design on your drawing. Add a few lines within the shapes of the shoes for the soles, laces and overall design. You can also look up your favorite basketball shoe and try to duplicate its design or logo on your drawing.
Step 18: Draw the basketball hoop as a thin, long, horizontal rectangle. Below the hoop, draw two long, vertical lines for the sides of the net. Between the lines, draw a series of intersecting lines for the detail on the net. The lines should be diagonal so that they create little diamond shapes where the lines cross. At the bottom, draw a few V- shaped lines. Draw a square- like shape on the left side of the hoop.
Step 19: Using a pen or marker, carefully go over the lines to make your basketball player drawing permanent. After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your basketball player drawing using color pencils, markers or crayons! Color your drawing however you'd like. For this look, use brown for the hair and light brown for the skin. Color the rim and basketball orange. Use blue and red for the uniform and shoes. Use gray for the net and for shadows on the uniform. You can also color your drawing using your favorite team's colors instead. Don't forget to pause to draw at your own pace.
