Snowman in Adobe Illustrator
Today, we will draw a Snowman in Adobe Illustrator. We will use the Ellipse Tool, Pen Tool, Pencil Tool, 3D Revolve Effect, and a few other tools and effects.
Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a new document.
Now follow the below steps–
Select the Ellipse Tool and draw two circles of size 139 pt X 139 pt and 259 pt X 259 pt respectively.
Now we will fill the gradient in both the circles. Select the small circle and double click on the Gradient Tool to open the Gradient Panel.
Fill the Gradient Slider with #ffffff and #cbffff. Select the Gradient Type as Radial and the Angle is 44.9o.
Fill the second circle with the same gradient.
Now we will draw buttons and eyes for the Snowman. With the help of Ellipse Tool, draw three circles of size 20 pt X 20 pt and two circles of size 15 pt X 15 pt.
Place the three circles in a vertical line at the center of the body of the Snowman and the two circles at the place of eyes on the face of the Snowman.
Now we will draw the reaming parts to complete the face of the Snowman. Select the Pen Tool and draw a triangle shape as shown in the below image. The shape will be filled with the color #ed1c24.
Now with the help of Ellipse Tool draw eight circles of size 2 pt X 2 pt and group them by pressing Ctrl + G.
Select the group of circles and click on Effect in the Menu Bar. Place the cursor on Wrap and select Arc.
A dialogue box will appear on the artboard. In that dialogue box, select Horizontal and Bendpercentage is -50%.
Check the Preview and click OK.
After completing the face, now we will draw the hands of the Snowman. Select the Pen Tool and draw branches like shape. Fill the shape with #3c2415.
Again with the help of Pen Tool, we will draw a scarf. The scarf is filled with the color #710711.
Now select the Rectangle Tool to draw the hat of the Snowman. With the help of the Direct Selection Tool, we will curve the corners of the rectangle.
Now select the Pencil Tool and draw some random shape on the top of the hat. Fill the shape with #ffffff to give it a look of snow.
With the help of the Selection Tool and Shift key, select the hat, scarf, nose, and hands of the Snowman and apply Ocean Ripple Effect.
This is how we can draw a Snowman in Adobe Illustrator.
