I have never actually built a snowman before but I assume it's not . . . complicated. Right?

Harder than you think lol. The first and only time my siblings and I played in snow we could only make a snowman that was about 6 inches high.

They usually wind up more like tall, lopsided lumps.

I tried. We don't get enough snow here in Texas.

Not too hard as long as the snow isn't powdery and hard to mush together. It melts a bit when you touch it with bare hands, not recommended with how cold it would be. Once you have a small snowball, you just set it on the ground and roll it to make it bigger. ^_^

The page makes the process seem a lot faster than it actually is.

It depends on snow and temperature a lot. But that ball is definitely huge, would take lot of time to make it so round.

When we made snowmen as kids (my sister and I) we started at the top of a large hill in our backyard and rolled the balls down from the top, and our father put each heavy ball on top the other until we had a rather nice snowman. It's easy to get a large ball if you have a nice-sized hill to roll it down.

My mom and I only did calvin and hobbes-esque themed snowmen, so we usually made monsters and snowmen eating other snowmen. We did a lot of "build a giant mound, give it a face and teeth" kind of thing. But yeah rolling it is pretty difficult XD But hey, maybe he's just a master snowman-man?

I find it laughable that this webcomic hardly ever receives a response of this size (which it should; I don't want anyone to think I'm trolling here- do people still say trolling?), and the reason is because people are using it as a forum for novice snowman builders.

@ParadoxComic: It really, really depends. The snow has to be the right kind of wet and sticky... too much, and it's just mush. Too little and it falls apart. Then it helps if it's deep enough, because otherwise it picks up all the dirt and leaves left on the ground..

I can only think of one really exceptional snow in my life that let me live out my snow-sculpting dreams... but it's been twenty years since I've really had that opportunity, too.

It takes a couple people if you want a giant one. Snow gets really heavy when it is all packed together. It has to be a good wet snow too. If it is really cold out the snow will be dry and powdery. :)

@Cyberleaf: I find it normal that the response gets bigger when there is something to comment about.
