draw a snowflake

Snowflakes are one of those natural phenomena that just keep getting awesomer and awesomer the more you learn about them. Ok, so “awesomer” is not a word, but we can’t help it, we’re excited about the winter season and the majestic, microscopic crystals that fall from the sky, grouping together to form the equally lovely look of a freshly coated snowy landscape. 

Today’s Weekly Drawing Project asks you to take on the challenge of drawing one of these magnificent ice crystals, in all their individualistic glory. After all, no two are the same, just like people. How detailed you decide to get is up to you. To help get you started, we’ve created a step-by-step tutorial to help you draw a snowflake with PicsArt’s drawing tools. Whether you want to incorporate the delicate sixfold symmetry or to experiment with your own creation, we look forward to seeing what you come up with using the hashtag #wdpSnowflake!
