Week fifty-three

Did you know tomorrow is Make Cut-Out Snowflakes Day? Let me teach you how to make snowflakes the Procreate way!

How to Draw a Snowflake mini tutorial

Start by creating a square canvas (mine is 3000×3000 pixels). 

Turn on the Symmetry Feature

Go to the Actions Menu > Canvas > Toggle on Drawing Guide. Then tap Edit Drawing Guide. In the lower toolbar, tap Symmetry, then tap Options. Change to Radial, turn off Rotational Symmetry, and turn on Assisted Drawing.


Tap Done to go back to your canvas. Whatever you draw will be automatically repeated in all the other sections!


You can use the Quickline and Quickshape features to help you draw straight lines and angles. I also like to use the Eraser tool to create sharp corners on my angles.


Here are some snowflakes I made using this method! Get creative with the shapes and look up examples of snowflakes for more inspiration.

Once you draw your snowflakes, color and finish them however you’d like!

Want to create snowflakes that look like you cut them from paper like the ones above? Learn how in my new Skillshare class: Realistic Paper Cut Illustrations in Procreate!


Learn how to cut digital shapes out of real paper, create lighting effects and manipulate shadows to create folds, bends, and curves in my new, in-depth class about making paper cut art in Procreate!
