Hey folks, boy do I have awesome tutorials for you guys today. I will start by showing you "how to draw a nuke", or nuclear blast step by step. The reason for the lesson is due mainly because of the documentary I watched with my little brother on the atomic bomb. The mushroom cloud or cloud of death has been a site that no one wants to see ever in their lifetime. Even though some of us are fortunate to not have been exposed to such a site, there are in fact people that have. My heart goes out to all that have seen a nuke blast, it must have been the most terrifying site ever seen. Anyways, I know the debris cloud is like death staring at you, it is still considered to be one of the most recognizable objects or mass which means it is an interesting concept to recreate. I think you should all do fine drawing a nuke blast. You can use this cloud to a background drawing, or you can leave it as is. I will return so keep an eye out.
