Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a long half-circle on the left of the page.
Bring two lines down from the bottom of this, and then “bump” these out on the sides. Beneath the bump, bring the lines down and join them at the bottom to form the stalk.
Add small circles across the width of the cap…
And then add another small half circle to the right of this.
Add another half circle to the bottom, making this slightly narrower…
And then add another, large half circle to the right of this.
Add another shape to the bottom of this, just as before.
Add circles to the top of this mushroom…
And then add a wavy line to the left of this.
Now, add a pointed almond shape to the top of this line.
Draw a small circle on both sides just below this, and then another circle on the right.
Now, add leaves all down the length of the stalk.
Add another small mushroom shape to the right…
And then ad long, flat half-circle cap to the right of this.
Draw small circles inside this new cap.
Add another stalk to the bottom of this, just as before.
Bring a line up on the right of this…
And add a leaf to the top of this.
Add more circles down the stalk…
And then add leaves, just as before.
Add another small mushroom to the right of the leaves.
Add small circles to the top of this…
And then add another cap to the right.
Add circles inside this…
And add another stalk to the bottom.
Now, add five small circles above this shape, arranged in an arch.
Grab a blue pen, and connect the five circles in a “fork”. Then, grab a ruler, and add a vertical line to the bottom.
Grab a black pen, and add tufts of pointed grass to the bottom of the mushrooms.
Use a red pen to shade the top of the mushroom caps, and the circles on the leaves and above the forest.
Use a blue pen to shade the leaves in between the mushrooms.
And there we have it – a mysterious mushroom forest, home to fairies, pixies, and all manner of strange creatures – just make sure that you approach slowly and quietly…
