In this instructable, I am going to teach you how to draw Yoshi from Mario.
Step 1: Finding a Good Reference Picture
When you're drawing Yoshi, you need to find a good reference picture to get the idea of the drawing. It's okay if you take a lot of time to find a photo. Just remember to find a good one that you like. For this instructable, we will be using the game cover from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Note: We will only draw Yoshi, not Toad.
