Drawing Volcanoes

Volcano drawing is something of a childhood memory for me that I loved as a kid, I enjoyed drawing the volcano erupting with lava and huge rocks being hurled out the volcanic mountain all over some nice landscape with trees and maybe a nice village somewhere in between.

So this hubpage is a complete joy to write and draw. Now in the following video I simply start to sketch the overall mountain shape of the volcano and the draft sketch is the early idea based off the photo above, now you yourself can source some online photos of actual real life volcano's too if you wish and that's what I would recommend because once you've seen a volcano in action, either on video or in a photo, then it's easier to relate that drawing on the page.

Be aware when drawing a volcano that there will be lots of mountainous detail that you could add, but don't worry about it too much as the fun really is drawing in the top of the volcano as it eripts with all the lava and smoke spilling out from the top and a few lumps of rock flying out for good measure.

I would always approach your drawings as if they are in stages, because this will help to realise your progress and evaluate each drawing stage and you'll be able to know what works and what doesn't work in your own sketching process, art and drawing is about finding your own way of working and this is what will motivate you later on.

In the video below you will be able to see the drawing of a volcano unfold before your eyes and pay close attention to the drawing because I don't copy the above photo either, I make up my own volcano sketch inspired by the photo and that's what artists do.

Drawing volcanoes is still fun and I think I'll be adding more examples to this hubpage for sure!

      Had to share this one and a lot due to the video. You provided such a good presentation on as you say, "How to Draw a Volcano." You captured it so well especially when describing how you were going to give it energy. Thumbs up.
