How to Draw Mario

Learn how to draw Mario is seven easy steps and amaze your friends with your cartoon drawing skill

How to draw Mario MicroBook
Mario is the best. The Mario games are fantastic to play whatever your console, but he is not easy to draw. Unlike many cartoon, Mario started life as a tiny image, a handful of monochrome pixels animated on a miniature screen. As he has developed he has become more and more detailed as the games console technology has enabled us to see more of what he looks like. This means though, that he is not simply proportioned in a way that can be simplified for drawing as a cartoon.
. . . Don't worry though, because we have worked out exactly how you can learn to draw Mario and put it in this lovely little MicroBook. Two activities in one. Print out the MicroBook, and make it, then use it to learn how to draw Mario, and because the book is so small, you can keep it with you, take it to school or on holiday and draw Mario wherever you want. The MicroBook has detailed written instructions for each stage.
. . . Remember this useful tip: When drawing cartoons don't outline them in black. try outlining them in a medium grey, or better still, why not try drawing round each shape in a darker version of the colour that you are using to fill that section. That way, the cartoon will look brighter and much more like the real thing.

Colouring & drawing

Nothing acts as a better window on, and the unhindered expression of, a child's inner most thoughts than their drawings. From a five year old's stick-men to angst-ridden teenage doodles, what you scribble, at any age, says a lot about you.

The skills involved in drawing and painting also help develop a whole range of creative, problem solving abilities in children; so encouraging your kids to draw and paint as much as possible has no downsides.
Dadcando is all about encouraging creativity in all walks of life and especially in that important bond between parents and their children. In this section you will find some lovely colouring and drawing projects, designed to be exciting and presented in a way to help your children develop their own drawing abilities.
