You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing a rectangle. This creates an outline of the following table shape.

A basketball hoop is mainly composed of straight lines. So you may need to use a ruler to help you draw straight lines quickly and easily.

Step 2 – Create the following table

Draw a border inside the following panel following its rectangle. Then, inside the border, draw a smaller border of the same shape.

When drawn correctly, it will form a parallel rectangle inside the following table. This adds an additional detail on the following table.

Step 3 – Draw the details of the following table

Draw a symmetrical square in the bottom center of the back cover. This outlines the square hole just above the ring, which we will draw in a later section.

Don’t forget to remove the overlapping border inside the square! This helps keep your drawings sleek and refined.

Step 4 – Draw the ring or rim

Draw a long side rectangle at the bottom of the square that we drew in the previous step.

This forms the ring or rim, which is where basketball players try to shoot the ball through.

Make sure that the rectangle is slightly wider than the width of the square.

Step 5 – Draw a space on the following board

Draw an open bottom square inside the square we drew earlier in the third step. When drawn correctly, you should now see two parallel squares.

Step 6 – Outline the lattice of the ring

Just below the rim or ring, draw two curved lines leaning towards each other. This will form a shape that is wide at the top and gradually narrows at the bottom.

This creates the outline of the mesh attached below the rim or ring.

Step 7 – Add the patterns of the network

After drawing the outline of the mesh, we will now draw the distinct criss-cross patterns that grids usually have.

Proceed to draw V-shaped lines just below the rim or ring.

Step 8 – Add More Criss-Cross Details

Draw a second layer of V-shaped lines just below the ones we drew in the previous step.

This time, however, the Vs should align with the gaps on the first layer. This will form a “diamond”, as shown in the illustration above.

Repeat the same step below the second layer to create a third layer of the same pattern. Remember, the V shapes must align with the upside down Vs to form diamond shapes throughout the lattice.

Step 9 – Completing the Basketball Spin

Finish off the basketball hoop by drawing the last two layers of the V-shaped pattern just below the last layer we drew earlier.

At this point you should have a total of 5 layers of the same model forming the entire mesh.

Remember that the shapes on the bottom layer should be relatively smaller than those on the top. This ensures that the shapes match the shape of the mesh.

Now that we’ve successfully drawn a basketball hoop, it’s finally time for the most interesting part. In this final step we will colorize the basketball hoop to make the artwork vibrant and colorful.

This step is optional but we recommend doing so to get the most out of your experience.

The backboard comes in a variety of colors while the rim or rim is predominantly orange, similar to the color of a basketball. The color of the following table mainly depends on the team currently playing on the field.

Feel free to use any color you like! You can even use multiple colors to create a multicolored basketball hoop! How fun?
