Modeling Exercise – Soccer Ball
In this Blender modeling tutorial I’ll teach you one way to model a different kind of soccer ball. I swear it’s not a volleyball trust me. The techniques involved will give you ideas on how to go about modeling panels on spherical surfaces. We’ll also be adding a little stitching effect around all the seams. This tutorial involves using modifiers such as the array modifier, mirror modifier, cast modifier, and more. To learn how I made the grass you can watch Steve Lund’s tutorial listed below.
