Drawing of Mario from Mario Bros.
A recent request came in for more gaming character tutorials, and I am only too happy to oblige.
I recall that my son used to love playing games like Mario Bros. when he was in elementary school, and they were in fact the only drawing projects that would interest him at that time. He has subsequently gone on to pursue other interests (in college, mind you!) but if you asked him to draw something today, I think he would feel pretty confident in his ability to whip out a sketch for any particular need that he had.
That’s what drawing practice can do for you, give you another skill that you can use when you need to convey something through pictures instead of words. And that can show up in anyone’s life, at any particular time, so why not approach drawing as something to work on, instead of a mysterious talent that some have and some do not?
