Composite line drawings in most cases can represent the morphological characters of a fungus better than digital photographic images. Even so, the use of line drawings for illustrating microfungi in published literature has declined. A novel technique combining computer hardware and software to illustrate microfungi as line drawings is described in detail. This technique can be applied to drawing larger fungi and other disciplines such as entomology, where the effect of stippling is used.
