Am I My Brother’s Keeper? Super Mario Brothers Coloring Pages

YES! If you play Super Mario Brothers or know anything about the video game franchise these two brothers are as thick-as-thieves. I mean Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Piranha Plants, etc. I can’t even list all the things these two have had to endure! And through it all they stay family. Anyway, for this particular coloring page release I’m doing a two-for-one special: two brothers, one release.

These two were pretty much already chibi but I added the ‘Vanquish touch’ to them. Enjoy!

New Coloring Page – Yoshi

30 Days to Phoenix Fan Fusion

Countdown to Phoenix Fan Fusion! It’s only, yes, ONLY 30 days away! Holy moly. I need to draw a new armored Batman and Suicide Squad Harley Quinn. I have Baby Groot but I still need to color it. Sheesh! Time flies. The mission is on!

New Coloring Page Release

In the meantime, enjoy Yoshi. Truly, it wasn’t that hard to draw Yoshi because he is basically a chibi character already. I did have fun inking the different line weights. I’m still not sure if the red bump on Yoshi’s back is a shell or a saddle. I have no clue. I’ve seen Mario on Yoshi’s back so it looks like a saddle but the bump is convex instead of concave (like a real saddle) so it’s unclear. Confusing.

New Coloring Page – Bowser

Continuing with my release of video game-themed coloring pages, I’m presenting Bowser. This character is the nemesis for most of the Super Mario Brother franchise. Although it wasn’t so in the very beginning. I remember a big gorilla throwing barrels at Mario as he climbed ladders to save a damsel in distress. I remember trying to play Donkey Kong at the arcades and failing miserably at it. I was able to play Super Mario Brothers pretty well by the time the Nintendo gaming unit came into the home market. It was a blast! I played Excite Bike and Super Mario Brothers as well as Duck Hunt. I think those games were the standard for starting out. Jackal was one of my favorite games to play. I loved my Nintendo!

Anyway, a tribute to villain at the beginning of it all – Bowser.

Assassin’s Creed Coloring Page

I bought the Assassin’s Creed Trilogy about a few years ago for the PS 3. I tried to play it and I’m on the one with Ezio in Renaissance Italy. I’m stuck at one part because I can’t get off the darn rooftops. I’ll figure it out eventually.

I understand there are a SEVERAL different versions of this game. If I wanted to make a coloring page series about it I probably could! Assassin’s Creed II, III, Black Flag, Revelations, Rogue, Unity – sheesh! There are a lot of choices for drawing. I decided to make this version for my first gaming coloring page.

By the way, where is a good site for help jumping on and over to rooftops? I’m stuck on that part in Assassin’s Creed II (the one in Italy during the Renaissance). Let me know of any “how to” sites online to get past that part in the comments.

Added New Pages

Since I’m getting ready for Phoenix Fan Fusion in May, I seriously need to update my originals section for my booth this year. I’ve sold out of most of my originals, which is a pretty good problem to have, I’m not complaining! First on the list, some nostalgia.

My best friend wanted a tattoo of He-Man, which I did draw for him. He didn’t get the tattoo. So instead of sulking I decided to make a matching Skeletor. I think these two originals will definitely appeal to anyone who watched Saturday cartoons in the 80’s or after school cartoons (let’s not forget syndication) in the 80’s as well. We all know about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. I may continue the series, who knows? I added new pages to the navigation of my website to account for all the new stuff coming.

Stay tuned! My gaming series is on it’s way.

New Coloring Page Series!

I’m writing the tutorial downloads for my videos but I still haven’t bought my new cord. That is forthcoming. I DO have a new series of coloring pages. This time it isn’t really a movie or comic book as much as a series inspired by video games. I used to play them religiously when I was much younger. Dare I say it, I’m from the Atari 2600 generation. Yes, that old! I witnessed the evolution of video games from Atari to Nintendo to Sega to PlayStation to Wii and beyond! It was fantastic and I’m grateful to have lived through that epic time in history.

On another tangent, I’m also making some more tutorials. Here is a preview video of what you can expect in the coming weeks.

STAR WARS Coloring Page – Boba Fett

When I first saw Return of the JediĀ I was upset that Boba Fett was killed off. Seriously? He is the best bounty hunter ever. Greedo? Cad Bane? Bossk? My favorite is Boba Fett.

In fact, I love this character so much, I decided to use him as the subject for my next inking video. I made a copy of this Boba Fett with basic inking and then I demonstrate how to use different line weight to change the look and mood. It should be good. I’m including a printable worksheet with it so stay tuned!

I’m working on a bunch of new videos and, of course, I’m getting the Guided Portfolio workbook ready. After the release of my Star Wars coloring pages, I’m getting back into the drawing tutorials.

In the meantime, May the Coloring Be With You!
