Whether you are a fan of skiing, a snowboarding aficionado, or simply enjoy the feeling of snuggling down while the snow is falling outside, a cabin in the snow can be a pretty cozy prospect. Let’s get started, and learn how to create our very own winter wonderland!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a cyan pen, and draw a bumpy line heading up at a 45-degree angle, just to the left of the center of your page. At the top of the line, curve it over, and start a short line heading back down towards the bottom right-hand corner.
Extend this line at the top out towards the right around half an inch, and then continue the line after a gap, taking it almost to the end of the page. Bring the line down at a 45-degree angle towards the bottom right-hand corner, and then back across horizontally to the left. Bring it up towards the top left-hand corner, and then back down, parallel with your original line. Connect these at the bottom with a curve.
Now add a series of sharp “spikes” to the bottom line – these are the icicles on the roof of the cabin.
Take a black pen and a ruler, and draw three lines in the gap you left at the top. The central line should come down slightly longer than the others. Then, connect the lines at the top to create the outline of the chimney, and add a strip just below the top.
Add detail and definition to the chimney by adding a block to the top on the right, and again to the left.
Add small squares on the corners of the chimney, joining to create a rectangle in the middle, and ending in a “semicircle” shape on the right-hand edge.
Grab the cyan pen, and join the bottoms of the chimney lines with a wavy line.
Use the black pen and ruler to add a sharp “arrow” shape, directly beneath and parallel to the wavy lines.
Add a short line to the bottom of the left-hand line, and then bring another line up to the top, parallel to the first. Add another short line to the bottom of the right-hand line.
Bring a line downwards from the bottom right-hand corner of the “strip” you just drew, and then add a series of interlined circles just to the left of this.
Bring another line of interconnected circles down on the right-hand side…
And use the cyan pen to add two icicles to the right hand line, and two wiggly, wavy shapes in the middle.
Use the black pen to create a window between these central wavy shapes.
Then, use the cyan pen to add a semicircle shape beneath the window.
Grab the black pen and ruler, and bring two straight lines down from the bottom of this new shape.
Connect the ends of the line together at the bottom, and then add a curved line on the left-hand side. Add a series of vertical lines to create a wooden door.
Use the cyan pen to create two more shapes on the side of the house, just as you did before…
And use the black pen to add another window in the middle of these.
Now, add a bumpy shape, almost like an “m” on its side, to the right-hand edge of the roof.
Use the cyan pen to create a “Christmas tree” shape just below this, and then repeat two more groups of this shape beneath the icicles, and on the left-hand side of the cabin.
Now use the cyan pen to connect the bottom of the left-hand group of trees to the door, bringing it forward to create a path. Repeat this path on the other side of the door, and bring the line down underneath the trees, across to join the black line on the right of the cabin.
Now add another tree poking out to the right…
And bring the line on the left round underneath the trees to create another patch of snow.
Use the black pen and ruler to rule a series of horizontal lines across the front of the cabin.
Then, repeat this on the right hand side.
Take the black pen, and add small marks all across the surface of the cabin, giving the wood some texture, detail and definition.
Then, add a series of small circles leading up the path. Fill these in almost completely with the black pen, leaving small white dots on each.
Grab a blue pen, and add more trees around the top and back of the cabin. Fill these in almost completely, leaving small white dots.
Then, add another group of blue trees to the right of the cabin – leave these blank for the moment.
Fill in the trees on the right, leaving small white dots all over the surfaces.
Grab a yellow pencil, and fill in the squares on the chimney, the windows, and the circles on either side of the doors.
Use a cyan pencil to shade the areas of snow on the roof and the floor, as well as the remaining trees.
With a gray pencil, fill in the rest of the chimney…
And then use a brown pencil for the main body of the cabin.
Take a pale orange pencil, and add color to the door and the frames of the window…
And then fill in the path with the gray pencil.
Now use the gray pencil to add a plume of smoke emerging from the top of the chimney…
And fill this in to complete the look.
And there we have it – a super cozy cabin, nestled in a winter wonderland. Who knows what amazing tales and adventures might take place there – why don’t you get imagining to find out?
