Draw a volleyball: The more we understand the underlying thought processes of our audience, the more we can begin to comprehend their needs and wants.
It’s a complex thing to do, but you don’t need to be a psychologist or an analyst to do it. You just need a basic understanding of psychology.
A volleyball court
A volleyball court.
Just when you thought you were done with your volleyball game after you did your backstroke and then took a nice long rest, the coach says: “Now, you have to do some fancy stuff.” It’s time for another set of moves, so here are the steps:
- Set up your volleyball court.
- Make sure your court is big enough for everyone.
- Put the ball in a spot so that it will be easy to see it but impossible to miss it (because of course you don’t want people to miss it).
- Set up two other courts on either side of yours so that they overlap each other in length and width and so that spectators can see both sides at once (you might also want to put a fence in between them).
- Practice shots until you get them right (of course, this is what we all do when we first start playing).
A ball that is round in shape
When we talk about “how to draw a ball”, we are talking about one of the core concepts of the product design process. In fact, it is so important that many folks forget it exists.
The basic concept of “how to draw a ball” is that you need to use a variety of techniques, and in varying combinations, to create an object that looks like one you have seen before. You can see what we mean by this by drawing a volleyball and then looking at your drawing. The first thing that strikes us is the shape of the leg (the other leg), which is very similar to the shapes you have seen before in your experience with balls.
So while there are many different variations on how you can draw a ball, it actually comes down to three things:
1) That there are shapes which have similar elements in them (i.e., they share similarities)
2) That there are shapes which have different elements in them (i.e., they don’t share similarities)
3) That there are ways of drawing shapes which create some kind of unity or pattern for those shapes (i.e., those shapes look similar but not exactly alike).
So what do these three things mean? Well, if you think about them closely, they make sense even if you don’t understand them yet — because you can see it as an analogy between people; people who have a common way of doing something and those who do not (and vice versa). So let’s get into each one:
1.) Shape Similarity: As I mentioned above, if two people in your experience with balls share some sort of similarity or patterning in their movements or actions or anything else at all, then it means that two objects will be similar enough for your eyesight to perceive them as having some kind of unity/similarity as well — and thus as having some kind of shape similarity for your drawing techniques. If someone has crooked legs and so does another person — then the legs will look alike in terms of shape similarity. If someone has different colors from another person — then their colors will look like each other too; but if they each have their own unique colors…then chances are they won’t look alike again when drawn at all! We could go on forever discussing this…but really any way you slice it, shape similarity works as an effective aid in building up your mental picture based on what
Many colors on it
If you want to be able to draw a volleyball, you need to understand how it works, and then you can use that understanding to best draw your own.
The first thing you should do is to understand how the game is played. This means understanding at least two things: the rules of the game and how it is played.
The rules of the game are not hard; they are really simple. They are just three things: who plays, what ball they play with, and where they play.
The game itself is played on an oval field called a court (or net), which is divided into 12 equal parts by an imaginary line called the baseline (it’s different from a baseline in tennis). The players — each of whom have one foot on one side of the line that divides the court into its parts — start with their back foot on their side of the baseline and move forwards, passing under an imaginary circle drawn around the center point in each part (the circles are called lobbers) while touching up in front of them (called serves). The player who touches up first has a 1-point lead over his opponent; if he hits his ball out of bounds before his opponent does, he loses a point. If he hits it within bounds but outside his opponent’s circle, he gets two points for hitting inside and one for hitting outside; if he hits it both inside and outside, he gets all three points for hitting inside or outside; but if he misses his serve completely, then he gets nothing .
The other important thing about volleyball is that every point counts equally no matter what kind of possession it is in. This can be tricky — remember that everyone starts with just one point? But when your serve lands low enough to hit anywhere on the court except through your opponent’s circle but not inside it (because this would give him two points), you get 10 points instead of 9. And when you hit your serve so low that it lands inside but not right past your opponent’s circle but not very close (because this would give him two points), you get 9 instead of 10 points.
You get a bit more complicated when there are team goals: teams try to touch up before their opponents do and pass under their opponents’ lobbers or serve low enough so that their opponents can’t touch up without running into them . You also get some interesting situations with teammates who have let go mid-air before
