Step 1: Marker Lines

Begin by drawing two marker lines parallel to each other from top of paper to bottom.

Lines should be about ½” apart to look like a “straw”.

Do this two more times on each side of middle straw without overlapping or touching.

Space evenly apart, again from top edge of paper to bottom edge.

Step 2: Pencil Shading

Use a regular drawing pencil to begin shading spaces across paper.

Spaces can not touch sides.

Shade darker at edges and lighter towards center of each space.

Pencil Shading Continued

Shade evenly across paper in at least 6 spaces, no more than 10.

Just as with the regular pencil color lighter towards center and darker towards edges.
