Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how how to draw smoke clouds. Now, you usually have smoke clouds where there's a fire and here it's going to be an abandoned building. Abandoned means nobody's in it so in this fire nobody gets hurt. Alright, so you have your building and usually when it's on fire you have the smoke clouds go straight up at the beginning. So you can draw some straight kind of curvier lines and then they billow out. So then once you get up here, your smoke clouds are going to billow out. They're going to be black, you know, you can add some white to it but they get bigger and they start loosening up but here you know, you can make, put some white lines in it. There's white and depending on the fire there's a lot of darkness to it. But just keep the billowing aspect to it and then you'll have a pretty decent smoke cloud. Enjoy.
