How to Make Video Games Characters


Learning how to make video games characters is a great way to explore the art of drawing.

In video games - unreal beings, places and worlds...

Are brought to virtual life before our very eyes.

The imagination is stimulated on a whole new level altogether.


When I first posted the "How to Draw Cartoon Characters" section, I initially expected to only draw some of the more famous ones...

Spongebob, Mickey Mouse, Bugs, etc.

Given the obvious popularity of video games though - it's only necessary that we devote an entire category - with lots of lessons!!... to this subject.

Make Video Games

So for sure...

Super Mario Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, Starcraft, Diablo...

The list is a VERY VERY long one, and for sure - it's going to be a blast making and watching it grow.

One more thing...

When drawing the characters you see here - ones based on the games they originate from...

Don't hesitate to *branch off* - and get super creative, wherever you can...

Coming up with your own unique takes on them.

It's easier to simply "let go and have fun" with the creative process, then to try and come up with that exact likeness to whatever it is, you're trying to draw.
