Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a mushroom cloud. Now, here's our land and here is the mushroom cloud. It is called a mushroom cloud because it looks like a mushroom. So this is the cloud that goes up. You know sometimes there's some fallout down here, you'll have some smoke and dust on the ground and I'm just drawing you know a lot of lines. You can do some shading in here as well and then let's get up to the cloud. You'll have this, now it's going to look like a mushroom and I'm doing a lot of just curved lines in here. This is smoke. When you're drawing smoke, it billows and you can do more shading in here than I'm doing if you'd like, a lot of shading and there's just, you know, I'm trying to convey the sense of cloud form and then also you might have another little circle here, the cloud shape. So see here, here's your mushroom cloud, and here's, you know, this isn't as much of the cloud this is the most important part. So let's outline this more so you can see it and see how it looks like one big mushroom. So there you go, there's a mushroom cloud. Enjoy.
