Given the amount of Mario drawings that have appeared in this section, readers might think these have always been easy to execute. But that's because they haven't seen the horrors that didn't make the cut. It's actually quite difficult -- and dangerous! Things can go terribly awry if you attempt to draw Mario without proper guidance and talent.
