A volcano is an opening in the Earth’s crust where lava, volcanic ash and gases can flow out.
Although volcanoes can be dangerous when they are close to one another, they look stunning from far away. Mount Fuji and Mount Etna are two of the most well-known volcanoes.
The beauty and fascination of these natural landscapes has led to a large demand for a tutorial on how to draw volcanoes.
We’ve created a step by step tutorial to help you draw a volcano. It is broken down into 9 easy steps.
This comprehensive tutorial will show you how to marvel at the beauty of a volcano from up close.
You can even customize your volcano drawing! You can even choose the colors yourself to make a volcano unlike any other!
Have fun with your artistic abilities!
Draw a line that forms the crater for the volcano at the center of your paper. This will create the volcano’s topmost portion.
By creating reference lines, ensure that the crater is drawn in the middle. Use the reference lines to guide you. Simply draw a horizontal and vertical intersecting line across your paper.
The spot at which the lines meet is the place where you should draw your crater.
Once you are done with drawing the volcano, remove all reference lines. This will keep your drawing clean and neat.
You can extend the lines of the crater with multiple elongated figures that have curved bottoms in different sizes.
This should look like a drip effect if drawn properly. This is what creates the lava flowing out of the volcano’s vent or crater.
Continue repeating the previous steps until the drip effect covers the entire bottom of the crater.
This completes the flow of lava out of the volcano’s crater.
Below the lava flow, draw a diagonally curved line. This creates the volcano’s structure.
Remember that the volcano’s sides must align with the edges of lava flows, as illustrated in the illustration.
Below the volcano, draw a horizontally curved line.
This is what creates the ground on which the volcano stands.
Continue to draw a continuous, scalloped line until you reach the middle of the cloud of ash.
Remember that the ash cloud should be rising out of the crater into the sky.
To complete the structure, repeat the previous steps. The ash cloud that comes out of the volcano’s caldera should now be fully formed.
It should look like a cloudy puff floating in mid-air above the volcano’s vent or crater, if drawn correctly.
Multiple droplet figures of different sizes should be drawn around the crater. This gives the illusion of hot, meltedlava splashing in various directions.
It also gives your drawing a more artistic look!
The cone-shaped shape of volcanoes and mountains is not ideal. They have many ridges and bumps, which is why we will be drawing them in this step.
