This tutorial, how to draw a snowman, is probably the easiest one you could choose to start learning to draw. To really draw a nice snowman, you need to make sure that you sketch a hat (1), a nose made with a carrot (2), buttons made with stones (3) and some arms made with branches (5). A good snowman should also have a floor brush (4) and a scarf (2).

Step 2

The body of the snowman is made of two circles (it could be more, it's up to you!). The hat and the scarf are drawn using rectangles. The arms can be sketch with simple lines while the floor brush is made of a line and a triangle. The eyes are represent by two dots and the nose is created with a small triangle. The buttons are small and round.

Start you work by sketching three triangles. Two will be used for the body and one for the head. Just make sure that the last one doesn't touch the body to make room for the scarf. Next, draw the arms using simple lines. 

Add the hat and the scarf using rectangles. Finish your drawing by sketching the buttons, the nose, the eyes and the mouth.
