Tornado Science!

My favorite part is the tiny toy cow in the bottle tornado.


I illustrated this for a Illustration Friday prompt: Tornado.
“COW!” Was my first thought, but the next was a good old-fashioned bottle tornado experiment that was popular when I was a kid.
This piece allowed me to experiment with process. For this piece, I drew a sketch on paper, then scanned it. In photoshop, I used the lasso tool and filled areas with colors. Then I used clipping masks to shade the color blocks.
