Take your turn at some Mario mushrooms! You don’t want to practice the exact same mushroom each time. So make sure to vary your ellipses to get the most out of this warmup.
Keep in mind these two key factors while you practice your mushrooms.
- Pressure - Keep your pencil pressure hard in the areas where you want the lines to show up darker and soft where you want them to show up lighter.
- Placement - Make sure to align your ellipses in the correct spots.
This is a warm-up, it’s not meant to look perfect. Don’t waste time going back over your lines to make them look pretty.
Practice this exercise until you feel like you have a solid grasp of the concept. It could be one page or it could be one page every day. It will be different for each of you, and that’s okay.
Don't forget to share your warm-ups in the community with your fellow classmates!
