Having been inspired by the Wimbledon tennis tournament recently, I wanted to create something like this Tennis Ball icon.
I've removed a lot of the edge detail on the Dribbble version, mostly because it made the icon look scrappy. But I'd REALLY advise looking at the pixel version to see all of the texture and details. It took a fair whack of time to get it looking right.
All done by hand in Photoshop. As always, I appreciate your feedback.

Creative. One week earlier... Wimbledon :)
Very Nice work! Great Detail!
my first thought was "what does THAT app do?!" but then I read the description. very cool. good work.
Nice, mate. Looks Great!
That is great! I would problably try to chance what angle you see the white stripes, right now it looks a little awkward. Other than that, love the texture, it's right perfect!
That's great :)
sooooo good it's ridiculous.
Haha, funny stuff!
Splendid, nice details and I love how the white stripes wrap around the corners. I think that the Wilson logo could get a better wrap around the top looking at the pixel-version.
Hey Mike! The full pixels are amazing!! Did you used any specific brush or pattern available around or you made all by yourself?
Hey Cesar! The only brush I used was a grass brush on VERY small for the edges, and a 1px round brush @ 50% for the individual hairs.
Man, this would be hard to serve.
Huh? Course it wouldn't Jack....you'd just use a square racquet ;)
As always... Perfect! Great work friend!
WOW, it looks incredible, lovely details.
Dude! That's insane! How do you get that texture like that?
Mate, seriously...gradients, noise layers and using Photoshop filters will do the job. Then a lot of patience will help in drawing individual strands. You'd be amazed at what can be created in Ps.
That is epic. Full view for justice.
Looks great! Epic textures!
I love this. awesome work
Thanks David. I'm a big fan of your work as well, so I gratefully appreciate your kind comment.
