Realism Challenge: Mushroom by markcrilley Realism Challenge: Mushroom by markcrilley
Here is the illustration that resulted from my latest YouTube video, "Time Lapse Drawing: Realism Challenge-- Mushroom." In the video you can see clips from every step in the illustration process, from first pencils to finishing touches:

I've taken the unusual step of including a ruler here, since my decision to do the drawing at the exact size of the real mushroom made for a very small working area: Good practice for pushing one's control of the drawing and coloring media to the limit.

Some commenters said they wished I'd put more time into it so as to get a more realistic final result. I think they're right, and next time I undertake such a project I will strive to do better.

Mushrooms drawn are more realistic than the pic of the ones. So I feel you've mastered your art. Hats off :)

This is truly amazing, Mark. I honestly have trouble telling which one is real and which one is the drawing.

I'll have to disagree with what some of the commenters said, the result looks exactly like the mushroom :3
