This is my winter snowflake maze. The snowflake lends itself mazes perfectly and makes an interesting pattern. I layered them in varying sizes so that I can make sure to fill in as much negative space as possible. The maze itself is pretty simple to solve so I added some rules to make it more challenging. If anyone completes the maze please list in the comments the most snowflakes you were able to pass through so we know who can make it through the most.
All of my mazes start as a pencil drawing and then are filled in with marker. Once I’m completed I use colored pencils to fill in the background color. This was a fun pattern to work on and I used the smaller snowflakes to fill in the gaps and make the maze more challenging.
Below is a time lapse video I created while making the snowflake maze. I’m asked all the time how long it takes me to create these mazes and I honestly have no idea because I make them 10 minutes at a time. Since I taped the creation of this maze I know that I ended up with over 3 hours of video. So it takes me at least three hours to draw my mazes but that obviously doesn’t count the hours of prep before I start inking them in. The video below is sped up to around 3 minutes so you can see how I fill in the maze as I go and color in the background at the end.
