Super Mario drawings
8 bit Super Mario

After all the fun with Super Mario during the New Year, we’ve been incorporating a few different Mario-related bits at home.

Quick parental tip

Before we begin, I found a great way to get my girls dressed quickly in the morning. My secret? Play the “Running Out Of Time” music from the Super Mario Bros. game:

Running Out Of Time – Super Mario Bros.

Not only did the girls get dressed within the 2 minute timeframe, they were also getting breakfast too 😊

Secondly, we’ve been adding some drawings to our scrapbooks:

Overall, I was happy with the end result. The drawing came out really well.

Unfortunately, I probably used the wrong tool for colouring in; felt tip pen. My Mario has been sunning himself too much. A point my wife Ting loves to point out 😭 In future, I will use crayons.

Mario’s front foot is actually placed in front of his body when I actually sketched it behind. Unfortunately, when I used the Sharpie I did the foot first. 😬

My younger sister made the same mistake a few minutes earlier. 🤦‍♀️

I did the shading under Mario before I did the ground, so that’s a bit disappointing.

I’m really happy with the ‘M’ on Mario’s cap.

I didn’t like doing his top hand and I don’t think it came out as I’d hoped. Drawing his hat and the other hand were really fun.

I loved one shoe but not the other one.

Overall, I’m really happy with my drawing 😊

To summarise, I’m really happy with the girls drawings. They put a lot of effort into their work and I think it shows.

Keep up the great work girls and keep practising!
