Today I thought I would show you folks "how to draw a twister", step by step. I do have a lesson on a tornado, but I just got done watching the movie 'Twister' for the fourth time, and after so many years I still enjoy the film. The twister that you will be drawing is a lot easier then the one I drew and uploaded in the past. This version is cartoony, neat, and very powerful looking. Last year there was actually a twister that came through where I live. To be honest, I thought these monstrous creations formed in hot areas, not dry cool mild areas. I guess the weather was just right to form the perfect recipe for a tornado in the upper north east part of the United States. I really enjoyed making this tutorial on drawing a twister. As you know the season is here where we will unfortunately see, or hear about these massive formations hitting ground.

Next, carefully draw in the thick dark lines that are in the same rhythm of the twisters shape or body. These lines look a little like tiger stripes.
