Many of the NBA basketball players you know and love can be drawn for epic action scenes and ball shooting. Swish your way into drawing your favorite players with help from a professional illustrator and 2-D animator in this free video.
Hello. I'm Michael Weisner. I'm an animator, illustrator, and graphic designer, and today I'm going to show you how to draw some NBA basketball players. Let's get started. Alright guys, to begin with drawing our NBA basketball player, pretty much you want to first start by drawing out the rough of how you want your character to stand. So I'm going to first draw out the head... start drawing out the body of our player. I'm going to draw him sort of posing and standing with a basketball. Bring it down a bit. Create some shorts. Half circle - that's our ball. Start drawing out the leg. There we go. Now we've got that, we need to start drawing him out a bit more, adding some detail, like some ears. Bring out his chin a bit more. For his torso, we're going to draw out a jersey, and I'm going to add a random number. Let's give him a ten. Draw out his shorts. Try to make them match the jersey up top. Draw out the basketball a bit. Give him some sweatbands, and there's our basketball player. And that's how you draw an NBA basketball player. Hope you enjoyed! I'll see you next time.
