Baseball has been called “the great American pastime.” The ball itself has a center made of rubber or cork that is wrapped in yarn. It is then covered with two peanut-shaped strips of leather or plastic. These strips are stitched together in a figure eight pattern.

Did you know? The yarn in the baseball can be up to one mile in length.

The baseball’s stitching has more than mere aesthetic value. The raised stitching causes drag when the ball is thrown, which in turn makes the ball curve in its path through the air. The pitcher can determine the direction and angle of the curve by how the ball is thrown.

The baseball was invented during the 1800s. At that time, all the balls were handmade – usually by the baseball players themselves – and variations in size, weight, and bounce were common.

Factories began producing baseballs in 1858. Over the years, changes and improvements were made that allowed the balls to last longer and be hit farther.

Today, baseballs are manufactured to specific standards so that performance is generally the same.

Unlike in other sports, if a baseball is hit into the stands, it is often kept by the lucky fan who retrieves it. These may become collector’s items if hit by a famous player or during a historic game. Balls autographed by players such as Babe Ruth are also sought after keepsakes.

How To Draw Anime Cowboy Hat Step By Step

The cowboy hat is often worn by anime characters as parts of costumes but some characters have it as a normal part of their outfit.

First draw a basic outline of the head and hair.

Draw the bottom of the top part of the hat with a large curve. This will make the hat look like its slightly pushed down on the forehead . The top part of the head should also be wider towards the bottom and narrower as it goes up. The very top of the hat should have a bit of an indent at the middle where the hat curves slightly downwards.

Draw the brim of the cowboy hat with its overall shape similar to a sausage where the ends on each side curved upwards.

Once done drawing the main shape of the hat erase the parts of the head and hair that are covered by it.

For some basic details add a wave like shape just below the top of the hat to better show that that part is slightly folded downwards. You can also add another line that traces the outline of the brim. This line can represent stitches that these hats tend to have in that area. Draw it some distance away from the brim at the front and closer to it as it progresses towards the back finally merging the two lines.

Finish the drawing by adding the details of the hair.

You can see the cowboy hat with some basic hair shading in the example above.

How To Draw Anime Hoodie Step By Step

The hoodie or hoods in general are very common in anime and manga. They can be worn by a wide variety of characters for many reasons.

Start by drawing an outline of the head, hair and the top part of the shoulders. As a hood generally will not press much on the head you can draw the hair volume the same as when no head ware is being worn.

Draw the hood itself in two parts, the outline of the fabric and the hole in it for the face. The outer shape of the hood should first pretty much trace the shape of the hair and then get wider as it goes down towards the neck. Around the neck area it should curve back inwards towards the head.

Draw the inner shape of the hood similar to the outer shape shape but start from around the forehead and end around the upper chest area with a sort of pointy downwards tip .

Erase the parts of the head/hair covered by the hood.

Add another line around the inner part of hood that first traces its shape almost exactly and then moves away from it around the shoulders and goes towards the bottom tip of the inner shape of the hood.

Around the area where this line starts to split away from the main inner outline of the hood draw a second pair of lines.

To finish the drawing you can add a zipper as well as the details of the hair .

You can see a large drawing of the hoodie with some basic shading above. Generally you will want to shade the inner part of a hood darker then the rest as that area almost always tends to be in shadow.

Check & Adjust The Size

Now is a good time to check the size of your cap. I actually didnt check until I did a few extra steps, as you can see in the picture, and I had to undo those steps to make the cap fit me right.

Put your cap on and see if its too big or small anywhere. Mine turned out to be too big at the back. Pinch the fabric together so that it fits properly, take it off and make marks to show how much you need to take in. Take out the back seam, draw a new stitching line and adapt your pattern for future use. Then stitch the new seam. Again, press the seam open and add the top stitching. Then cut off the excess fabric and the main part of the cap is done!

2. Sketch the player’s baseball cap. Outline the cap on top of the head and across the forehead, using a curved line to outline a rounded shape. Then, enclose the shape of the cap’s bill using another curved line.

3. Use a series of curved lines to outline the player’s hair. Notice the “U” shaped line that forms the ear.

4. Use curved lines to outline the player’s shirt. Notice how the near shoulder overlaps the player’s chin. Note, too, the overlapping of lines to indicate cinched material beneath each arm.

Cut The Fabric & Add Interfacing

The next step is to cut the pieces out of the fabric. Since I’m using an old shirt for my fabric, I started by taking that shirt apart so that I have flat pieces of fabric to work with.

Since my fabric is pretty thin and a bit stretchy, Im also going to add interfacing to it. You’ll have to decide based on your fabric if you think this is necesary.

If you’re adding interfacing, trace the pattern pieces onto the interfacing. For each of the three panels, youll need a left and a right version, so the two pieces need to be mirrored versions of each other. To achieve this, fold the interfacing over and cut through both layers at the same time.

Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of the fabric. The precise instructions are different for different brands of interfacing, so just follow the instructions that come with yours. Then cut around the interfacing to get the final pieces. Repeat these steps for the facing, but only cutting one, not two.

If you’re not adding interfacing, simly trace the pieces onto the wrong side of the fabric and cut them out. Make sure to make left and right versions of the cap pieces.

Cut two identical brim pieces, without adding any interfacing. Its fine if the fabric here remains a bit stretchy, since it will help it cover the brim nicely. I left the fabric a bit big on the inside to give some room for error later.
