Drawing From Memory
Drawing From Memory

How's your memory?

If we asked you to draw your favourite game, film or TV character right here, right now, could you do it? 'Pfft, of course!', you say - after an entire childhood spent playing Mario Kart and watching The Simpsons, you know the characters like the back of your hand, right?

Well, that’s what we wanted to find out. Just how well could we all recall our favourite characters when it comes to putting pencil to paper? We challenged a group of die-hard gaming, film and TV fans to sketch some of the most well-known characters, including Mario, Pikachu, Superman, Homer Simpson, Buzz Lightyear and Lara Croft, evaluating sketches on accurate recall of key details and colours.

Let’s see how many were able to do their characters justice, and how many literally drew a blank.
