how to draw
Along with their uniqueness, snowflakes are also very symmetrical. To capture this perfect symmetry, we are going to begin our snowflake drawing with a series of construction steps.
To begin our snowflake drawing, we are going to draw a small circle in the center of our canvas. Make sure that this circle is small.
This step is quick and simple. All you need to do is draw a slightly larger circle around the first one. Make sure that this circle is equidistant.
You can now add the third circle to your snowflake construction. Keeping the distance between the first two circles consistent, draw a larger circle around the first two.
Around the third circle, you can now draw a slightly larger circle. The gap can be smaller than the gap between the first few.
In this step, you can now draw the final circle. In contrast to the last step, you want the gap between the fourth and fifth circles to be slightly wider.
DRAW SIX STAR
In this step, we are going to begin laying down the foundation for the points of your snowflake drawing. Around the fifth circle, draw six pyramidal shapes.
DRAW THE 1ST
Begin the intersects with a tilted line that cuts the circles in half.
This line should sit between four of the pyramidal shapes from the last step.
DRAW THE 2ND
You are going to repeat the previous step but at a different angle. This time, draw the tilted intersection line on the opposite side.
DRAW THE LAST
Your final division line can now be drawn through the final four pyramidal shapes. All of these division lines should intersect right at the center of the smallest circle.
Begin with the intersecting line you drew, adding two sets of extending arms just before the ends. On the arms closest to the circles, draw two more, smaller arms.
ON THE ARMS
Try to make these lines as symmetrical as possible. On each intersecting line, the arms should be placed in roughly the same place.
ADD DETAILS TO
Begin at the central circle, drawing two hexagons. You can then draw a larger hexagon around these two but within the second circle.
Surrounding the rectangular shapes that you drew in the last step, outline and detail the star in any manner you please.
Just make sure that your patterns are as symmetrical as possible.
ou can outline and detail the inner arms on each of the division lines. Use rounded lines and add some small round particles in and around these details.
You can now simply repeat the process of the previous step on the final outer arms of your easy snowflake drawing. These patterns should be as symmetrical as possible.
Use a small brush and some light blue paint, and add an even coat of color to the entirety of your snowflake drawing.
ADD THE 2ND
COAT OF COLOR
ou are going to add a very light shade of light gray to your snowflake drawing. Use a fine blending brush, and carefully add a light coat to the whole snowflake.
Use a clean fine blending brush and some white paint to add highlights to the points of the snowflake that would naturally catch the light.
FINISH UP YOUR
To finish your easy snowflake drawing, you can now erase all of the harsh outlines. This will create a seamlessly finished drawing.
