How to render using Pastels with brush

1. Using your template draw a large circle in your paper
2. Shave a Yellow colored Pastel; this will be ball color.
3. Use your Round Brush, take some pastel dust in the container, tap it to remove excess dust in the brush, and start from the lower right side of the ball, shading in a circular motion around the inner circle.
4. Fill the ball, but remember to make it appear with gradual transition, so apply another coat of the color again as you did before, to make it darker and to have depth and dimension, as you can see the light source was coming from above, so the ball received highlight on the upper part as for lower part it turns away from the light by that the area will have a shadow.
