Inspired by what I drew for yesterday’s post, I made Super Mario Bros. 3 characters! I actually might make a bunch of these. Find some of the official artwork from some of the classic video game series. I’m not too sure if I’ll do it yet. But it might be a fun ongoing project for me to take on.
It actually takes a good amount of effort to try and take something that has already been done, like these Nintendo characters, and draw it exactly the same way. Well, draw it as close to the original as possible anyways. On the other hand, anything I draw completely on my own, I’m able to do whatever I feel like. I can add or take away details from my original idea, turn mistakes into new features (which happens frequently!), or take it in a completely new direction. Drawing these characters today however, there’s really only one way I could draw them properly without them looking “off”.
