How to Draw Mario

Step 1.

In this first step lest start it off with you drawing out the guidelines and shapes to form a nice solid frame for Mario. Start by drawing out the shape of his head which is an egg shape and then draw facial guidelines on the front. Then draw out the shape of his pot belly torso as you see here a simple wide circle will do. Now draw out the shapes of his arms and legs.

Step 2.

Next in this step you will start to draw in Mario's facial features. Using the facial guidelines you drew in step 1, draw in two oblong circles for his eyes, a big rounded nose circle, two half wing shapes attached to his nose for his awesome mustache, draw his eyebrows and the shape of his ear. Next start at the ear and make a straight line across his forehead for his hat and then go up and round it off. Draw a circle shape as shown in the middle of his hat which will display his emblem. Now move onto his body and start drawing out the straps for his farmer style pants. Next draw out and start shaping his gloves as you can see here.

Step 3.

Now in this step you will essentially be finishing off his face. Draw in his eyeballs and shape the bottom half of his mustache which is a continuous line of "W"'s. draw the other side of his hat on the right and finish off his ears. Now draw a curved line right in the middle of his straps to separate the pants from the shirt and continue the separation on t5he right hand side where you will be drawing out the shape of his right arm as well. Give him a round button on his right strap and sketch in some detail lining. Next detail his gloves with a simple side way's "M" on the right glove to give the appearance of a closed fist. Repeat the detailing on the other hand and draw out his left shoe.

Step 4.

All you will be doing here is shading in his pupils and detailing his hat a bit as shown. Draw in the famous "M" in the middle of his hat. Detail and shape his right glove a bit more and draw out and detail his right shoe. After you are done with all the drawing and detailing erase all the guidelines and shapes you drew in step 1.

Step 5.

Ok people, this is the last step to finishing your Mario character. I know learning how to draw Mario can be an easy process by following these steps. Anyways, get working on the areas where Mario's logo sets. Sketch the shoes, and the buttons for his overalls. Don't forget to catch the lines for his pupils and sideburns. I hope your ready to see how your line art should look.

Step 6.

And this is what your Mario should look like when you are completely done. Now you are ready to color him in and send him on his next job. See how easy that was. That will do it for this tutorial on how to draw Super Mario step by step. I hope you all had fun.

I always use to be on a mission to get back my mushroom to make myself bigger. How about jumping on those bad guys threw the game.

Mario was an Italian plumber who fell down a pipe into another world filled with monsters who were Bowser's minions and his goal was to travel through eight levels of different types of castles and worlds just to get to the Princess. Each level had different monsters and they got harder and harder the closer you got to her. This game moved on over time and Mario became more and more advanced.
