Help creating a specific model - Symantec sphere

Hi everyone,

I am very new to blender and although I can create simple models (cube’s and sphere’s) I am wondering if someone would help me with a specific model.

I am trying to create the yellow and black sphere symbol used in Symantec logos (

It looks somewhat like two ovals (one yellow, one black) wrapped around a sphere.

I know that I could do this with a texture using an alpha channel (hope this is the right term) for the clear area but I would rather just have an object/model that is correct.

Any insight would be appreciated.

It’s designed much like a tennis ball - this may help.

Thank you.

It does look like that tutorial would help.

Make a texture, UVmap it on your sphere, go to texture drawing mode and trace the texture.
