Step 1.

Okay are you ready to start this first step or what? The first thing to do is draw a small circle for the shape of the basketball players head and then draw a long curved line going straight down to the bottom. Next add a vertical line for the waist    

Step 2.

In this next step you will start drawing out the outline of the figure starting with the left side of the face and neck. You will then draw out the outline of the right arm and then the shape of the basketball. Shape out the calf, ankle and foot of t   

Step 3.

Well this is your last drawing step and what you will do is finish drawing out the shape of the silhouette by drawing the right hip and leg and then the right ear, face and neck. Erase all the guidelines that you drew in step one.

Step 4.

Once you are done your sketch should come out looking like this. I hope you liked this tutorial on how to draw the NBA logo step by step.

Description: So far today I showed you all how to draw two sports logos from two very popular baseball teams, the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. With this next lesson I will show you how to draw the NBA logo step by step. Now the logo letters stands for National Basketball Association. The NBA consists of 30 professional men’s basketball teams with 29 being in the United States and one in Canada. For those of you that don’t know, the basketball league was founded back in 1946 in New York and with its start it was called the BAA which stands for Basketball Association of America. The thirty teams that are part of the NBA are; the Boston Celtics, the New Jersey Nets, the New York Knicks, the Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit pistons, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Hornets, and the San Antonio Spurs. All thirty teams are part of the NBA and all thirty teams have their own fans. Some of the most popular teams are the LA Lakers, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, and the New York Knicks. The NBA logo is just a silhouette of a basketball player with two colors in the background that are halved into blue and red. I chose to do this logo because my brother is like almost six feet tall and he is only thirteen years old. He inspired me to do this lesson because I told him that he should become a basketball player due to his enormous size. This tutorial will show you how to draw the NBA logo step by step. Once again as a friendly reminder, all symbols used in this tutorial were drawn out by Dragon_Queen, but it is a registered trademark of the NBA. This lesson is strictly used to show fans and visitors how to draw their favorite basketball logo which is used inside the lids of fitted hats that are sold around the world. I will be back with two more lessons in a bit so stay tuned artist, members and visitors.
