Today I will tell you how to draw a snowflake. Winter is the perfect time to draw everything related to snow. That is why I created this drawing guide, which is adapted for aspiring artists.
A snowflake is a rather unusual drawing object. Despite the cartoonish and simplistic style, you have to do a little bit of basic geometric shapes.
It will be most useful for your skills to draw these circles and lines without aids. Indeed, without using a ruler it will be a little more difficult and longer, however, after a few such lessons, you will notice the level up of your artistic skills.
Therefore, I suggest that you take your favorite pencils and paper, put on some nice music and try it out.
Time needed: 25 minutes.
How to Draw a Snowflake
- Draw a circle.
This is what the base of the snowflake looks like.
- Add another circle.
Place this shape inside the path from the previous step.
- Draw another small circle.
This shape should be located in the very center.
- Add the last circle.
It should look like a target.
- Draw the elongated parts of the snowflake.
As you can see, these are elongated shapes that go through the center of the picture.
- Add patterns in the shape of a corner.
Try to maintain symmetry in every part of the design.
- Draw diagonal patterns.
Depict small rounded cylinders like in my reference.
- Add the last details.
Draw rounded shapes opposite the cylinders from the previous step.
- Color this snowflake.
Light blue is a great choice in our case.
