Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw good explosions. So we're going to start with a yellow marker and just make a big cloud formation so lots of curvy lines. And then I'm going to do another one that's a bit bigger, all the way out and then on this side another cloud, same on this side and just start layering different clouds all over the place so it looks like the explosion is coming right out. Now with the orange I'm going to do more clouds in its own place and color that in. It's all about layering a lot of cloud and you can make the orange go over the top of the yellow. You can do whatever you want but we also need some impact, it's not just a bunch of cloud. So from here I'm going to draw lots of lines coming out from behind all the clouds. Just as many lines as you want and they can be as long as you like. We can do some yellow ones and then to finish off I like to put some white in some areas because white really makes the clouds brighten up. And the white would mostly be in the center but you can also do some white pretty close too. Anything goes, as crazy as you like. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw good explosions.
