Prerequisite: Turtle module, Drawing Shapes

There are many modules in python which depicts graphical illustrations, one of them is turtle, it is an in-built module in Python, which lets the user control a pen(turtle) to draw on screen(drawing board). It is mostly used to illustrate figures, shapes, designs etc.  In this article, we will learn how to draw a snowman using the turtle module. Snowman consists of circular shaped snowballs of various sizes. The body of the snowman is made up of three snowballs placed one over the other. Eyes, nose, and buttons are also circular.  

Below are the steps of the above approach:

  1. Import turtle package. 
  2. Set screen with dimensions and color. 
  3. Create a turtle object with color. 
  4. Create the Snowman by illustrating overlapping circles at particular positions.

Below is the Python program to illustrate a snowman using turtle module:


# Import required module
import turtle
# Create turtle object
t = turtle.Turtle()
# Create a screen 
screen =turtle.Screen()
# Set background color
screen.bgcolor("sky blue")
# Function to draw body of snowman
def draw_circle(color, radius, x, y):
    t.fillcolor (color)
    t.goto (x, y)
    t.begin_fill() (radius)
# Illustrating snowman 
# Drawing snowman body
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 30, 0, -40)
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 40, 0, -100)
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 60, 0, -200)
# Drawing left eye
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 2, -10, -10
# Drawing right eye
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 2, 10, -10
# Drawing nose
draw_circle ("#FF6600", 3, 0, -15)  
# Drawing buttons on
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 2, 0, -35)
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 2, 0, -45)
draw_circle ("#ffffff", 2, 0, -55)
# Function to draw arms 
def create_line(x, y, length, angle):
    t.goto(x, y)
    t.setheading(angle + 20)
    t.setheading(angle - 20)
# Drawing left arm
create_line(-70, -50, 50, 160
# Drawing right arm
create_line(70, -50, 50, 20
# Drawing hat
t.goto (-35, 8)
t.color ("black")
t.pensize (6)
t.goto (35, 8)
t.goto (30, 8)
t.fillcolor ("black")
t.left (90)
t.forward (15)
t.left (90)
t.forward (60)
t.left (90)
t.forward (15)
