Marker Art #28: Duck Hunt

Duck Hunt was one of the launch games with the original Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1985 in the US. What made this game particularly special is that it came with the NES Zapper, a handheld light gun that you used to play shooting games on your television. For those of us who grew up with the game, there’s nothing quite as memorable as missing your target and being completely berated by the “Duck Hunt Dog” who would laugh at you for being such a failure.

I just needed to capture this moment in my own art, so I got out my markers and graph paper to create the Duck Hunt Dog for myself. Check it out below!


After finding my template (seen above), I measured out my project to fit on my graph paper. Then I colored in the grass.
I wanted to get the black and dark red outline filled in so I could see the full scope of the character.
The “terra cotta” color gave the dog his body.
Some blue for the sky and we’re all done! I seriously love it.
