Although the characters I draw are easily identifiable, they're still not "right". And by that, I mean I want to be able to sketch these Mario characters until they look as accurate as possible, which I've still got a long way to go.
So starting with Peach (my favorite), I drew her in several angles with different hair technics to try and get a real feel for her. I even attempted Paper Mario style for the first time ... which didn't go too well. But you gotta begin somewhere, eh? This is overall just practice for me.
