In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a volcano that is spewing out very hot lava.

But first, what is a volcano? This is a formation in the earth that allows our planet to release many gases from itself at certain times. Just imagine what will happen if all volcanoes disappear. Probably our planet will simply explode from an overabundance of gas. Of course, they are very dangerous up close and make a strong impression.

It is for this reason that it is better to stay away from volcanoes, especially active ones, and admire them strongly at a distance. For example, on TV or in a picture.
