First version with attached hands and arms.
Added almost everything just to get an idea of how it might end up.
Starting to like the look of the tornado, but not happy with the hair. Added some leaves that I later removed again. I do this a lot.
Added more leaves and hair. Threw in some lightning for good measure. Used my smoke brush a bit.
Added even more hair and tweaked the contrast a bit. And as you can see I keep moving the leaves around.
Made the tornado darker. Now I'm not sure if I prefer the light or dark version of it. Oh well.
Moved some leaves around.
Tweaked the colors a bit and....done! (At least until I decided I wanted to make a widescreen version as well)
