How to Draw a Football Helmet

The football helmet is an essential piece of sports equipment designed to protect the head of a player in order to prevent any form of injuries. It is commonly used by football players during the game and is often seen on the heads of many other characters in films, cartoons, video games and other types of media.

This article will provide a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a football helmet, which is ideal for kids and beginners. The tutorial will be done using pencil and paper. Once the sketch has been completed, it can be refined and inked for a final drawing.

Step 1: Start with a Circle

Use the guidelines to draw a big circle for the outer layer of the football helmet. Add an oblong at the lower left portion and close this shape using a curved line.

Step 2: Add the Padding

Make sure to draw curved lines for the padding in the face mask. This is an important aspect that makes the helmet more realistic. In addition, you can also add other details like air vents and a chin strap.

Step 3: Finish Up

Once you’re satisfied with the shape of your football helmet, you can add more details. This includes a small oval shape for the ventilation system and a curved line with buckle-like shapes for the chin strap.

The finished football helmet should look something like the image below. It can then be embellished with decorations that showcase the team that the player belongs to. This will help to make the helmet more attractive and visually appealing.
