In this drawing lesson, I will show you how to draw Yoshi for kids. As you probably know, this is one of the most famous characters from the Mario universe.
Unlike most of the other tutorials on Howtodrawforkids.com, this tutorial on how to draw Yoshi will have more complex lines and details in steps.
This is because I usually simplify objects and characters in my drawing lessons. This helps make the instruction easier for children and beginners.
But if we try to simplify Yoshi, then he will cease to be recognizable. Therefore, we will draw Yoshi exactly in the form in which we could see him in games.
So get your art supplies ready and let’s get started!

Time needed: 40 minutes.
