Fascinating Facts About Snowflakes
Before diving into the art of doodling snowflakes, it’s essential to understand a basic concept: snowflakes have six sides. This hexagonal structure arises from the way water molecules join together in ice crystals. As these molecules freeze, they form a distinct shape with six points or sides. To create realistic and natural-looking snowflakes, remember to make them with six points. The uniqueness of every snowflake allows you to experiment and add intricate details or maintain simplicity, resulting in truly one-of-a-kind drawings.
Gathering Your Doodle Supplies
To embark on this creative journey, gather the following supplies:
- Paper, sketchbook, or your bullet journal
- My personal favorite drawing pens: Sakura Pigma Micron
For an extra touch of magic, glitter pens can make your snowflake doodles shimmer and sparkle.
Easy Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Snowflakes
To begin doodling snowflakes, we’ll start with intersecting lines in the middle to ensure our snowflake has six points. However, do not feel bound by chemistry lessons while doodling; if you find it easier to create snowflakes with eight sides, go ahead! In fact, my eight-year-old daughter saw my doodles and made her own versions, most of which have eight sides, and they still look brilliant! For symmetrical snowflakes, start with two lines forming an X, followed by another line through the middle to achieve perfect symmetry for all six sides. Feel free to practice a bit before incorporating intricate snowflake details. Below, you’ll find step-by-step tutorials on how to create snowflakes.
