Mario

I bought a few charcoal pencils and chalk, thought that I would want to try them out. But I wanted to draw another Video Game hero, who is more recognizable, and I thought he'd look more lively with colors somehow...
So itsa Mario! =) I realize that a lot of people didn't know who Ryu was in the last post, so I think this one should have no problem. He's done with some office highlighters, and basic colored markers, and I manage to use those charcoal and chalk on his gloves, and what I discovered too is that chalk works pretty well on markers ^^ Thank you all for your comments and for visiting.

  6. Ooooh, I love it! (I guess you already knew that. :D ) Computer games are a girls best friend... or something like that! (Well, I do need an obsession if I don't care about shoes, don't I?).
    It's amazing how much depth you create just with some regular markers! Sweet!

    Do you think you're gonna further expand your games heroes gallery? :)

    PS: I did recognize Ryu at once! You got him very well!

  7. He came out fabulous. Definitely more recognizable. You made my sons day when I opened your page. He wanted me to tell you, "He did great."

  8. Now this is a character that I recognize! And it is so well done!

    Hope your wait ends soon! I recently ordered some schminke paints. Actually, on July 22nd. I got them YESTERDAY! The lady didn't even mail them until I complained in an email about it taking so long! What is worse is that every time I order supplies I practically stop all production until the new stuff arrives! I don't know why I do that but it made this time feel like forever!

  15. Too much fun! Interesting to know that you mixed highlighters, markers and chalk. Mario never looked so good! And, I liked playing Mario Brothers.
