Description: How about a tutorial on another enemy from the Mario Bros series that has been around since the beginning of the game history. Yesterday I submitted a lesson on the Goomba and today I will show you “how to draw a Koopa Troopa", step by step“. The Koopa is a turtle like creature that comes in a variety of colors that range from green, yellow, red, and even blue. In the beginning of the gaming series of Mario Bros., they used to walk on all fours. As time progressed and the game creation became more advanced, the Koopa Troopa started walking on two legs. When Mario or Luigi jumped on a Koopa, the player can instruct whether or not to pick up and hurl the shell at other enemies before they regained conscience. Not all Koopa’s were mean though. I say this because in Paper Mario there was friendly Koopa Troopa’s and believe it or not but, some of them even flew. The ones that flew were called "Koopa Paratroopas". I always loved playing Mario Bros. and I especially loved picking up the shells and humming them at other turtles. This tutorial will show you “how to draw a Koopa Troopa step by step”. As you know I will be back soon I just have more to upload. Adios amigos.
