This is a real interesting concept drawing lesson that I conjured up as I thought of my grandmother and how she smokes cigarettes. I know there are millions and millions of people out there who smoke and believe me, a lot of my family members are addicted to the nasty habit that happens to kill thousands of people every year. There are so many health risks when you are a smoker and some of them will lead you to horrible deaths. The most common is Lung disease. There are many more things to list but I don't want to go too far into this subject. The whole purpose of my rant on smoking and the side effects to your health, is because of the lesson I made. It's the image of a lifeless hand with a half smoked cigarette between the fingers. The butterfly represents life and how quickly it is taken away from you when you smoke. The bright, vibrant, colorful butterfly because it goes to gray as the smoke begins to poison life. This lesson is going to show you how to draw the death of me. The death to anyone who smokes and will continue to smoke. It's your life and you can do what you want, but at least think of the people next to you before you light up a stogie again.
