Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 1

Step 1: Draw a circle near the top of the page as a guide for Mario's head. First draw four tiny marks for the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. But the circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. If you do want a perfect circle, trace the outer rim of a glass, a cup or anything else that's circular.

Step 2: Draw two intersecting lines inside the circle, one horizontal and one vertical. Curve the lines to contour to the head. The vertical line should be a little to the right of the middle of the middle of the circle. The horizontal line should be a bit lower than the middle. These construction lines will help you place Mario's facial features later.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 3

Step 3: On the left side of the head, draw a C-shaped line as a guide for Mario's ear.

Step 4: Draw another circle under the head as a guide for Mario's body. This circle should be about the same size as the one for the head. Draw this circle a little to the right of the head. Don't draw it directly underneath. A very small section of the circle at the top should be behind the head.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 5

Step 5: Draw a small circle on the left side of the body as a guide for Mario's first hand. Pay attention to the size of this circle in relation the circle for the body. It should be about one-fifth the size. Draw two curved lines that connect the small circle to the body to form the guide for the first arm.

Step 6: Draw another small circle on the top, right side of the head as a guide for the other hand. This circle should be the same size as the other small one on the left side of the body. Draw two curved lines, a short one and a long one, that connect the circle to the body to form the guide for Mario's other arm.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 7

Step 7: Draw another small circle under the body on the left side as a guide for Mario's first foot. This circle should be a tiny bit bigger than the circles for the hands. Now draw an arc above the circle and inside the body, as a guide for the rest of the leg. Mark the height of the arc with a small line, then add the curved lines on the sides.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 8

Step 8: Draw another circle under the previous one as a guide for the other foot. This circle and the previous one should be the same size. They should form a sort of 8 under the body. Draw a long line on the top, right side that connects to the body to form the guide for Mario's other leg.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo Initial Sketch

That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more finished drawing.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 9

Step 9: Draw a thin, long shape near the top of the head for the bill on Mario's hat. The shape is basically made up of two long, parallel lines that are connected on the sides by small arcs. The bill should be close to the top edge of the circle. It should be slightly tilted like the horizontal construction line.


 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 10

Step 10: Under the hat's bill, draw a couple of curved shapes as guides for the eyebrows. Mario's eyebrows are essentially two short, curved lines on top of each other. Don't overlap the eyebrow lines with the lines for the hat's bill. The eyebrows should be behind the bill. Use the vertical construction line as a guide to help you determine the space between the eyebrows.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 11

Step 11: Draw a curved line on the bottom half of the head for Mario's big nose. Use the construction lines as guides for placement. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. The end result should be similar to a wide circle or an oval with the top left side missing.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 12

Step 12: Draw a long oval under each eyebrow for Mario's eyes. Sketch lightly at first. Darken the lines only when you get the placement and shapes right. The top parts of the ovals should be behind the eyebrows. The bottom part of the eye on the right should be behind the nose.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 13

Step 13: Inside each eye, draw a smaller oval for the irises. Draw the irises close to the left edge of the eyes. The iris on the right is basically made up of a curved line. Inside each iris, draw an even smaller and thinner oval for Mario's pupils. Try to draw the pupils right in the middle of the irises. Shade the pupils except for a tiny circle at the top of each to represent glare.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 14

Step 14: Draw Mario's mustache under the nose using a series of curved lines. First draw a short line on either side of the nose to dictate the length of the mustache. Then connect the lines with a row of short, curved lines for the bottom part of the mustache. The curved lines on the right should be partly hidden by the nose. You should have a total of six small, curved lines that make up Mario's mustache.


 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 15

Step 15: Draw Mario's mouth below the mustache using a series of curved lines. First draw a U- shaped line for the open mouth. Then add a smaller line inside for the tongue. Draw a smaller curved line outside of the mouth on the lower, right side for the bottom lip.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 16

Step 16: Draw a long curved line above the head for the top part of Mario's hat. First draw a short line above the head to indicate how high the top of the hat will be. Then draw long curved lines on the sides that connect from the sides of the head to the top mark. The line should basically start on the left side above the ear, curve up and to the right and end on the tip of the bill.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 17

Step 17: Draw a curved line right on top of the bill, near the center, for the first part of the logo on Mario's hat. The shape should be similar to an oval with the bottom part missing.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 18

Step 18: Draw the letter M inside the shape to finish the logo on Mario's hat. To make the letter M bold, first draw a regular letter M with a short horizontal line on each "leg." Then draw a smaller letter M under it to make the shape thick and bold.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 19

Step 19: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the shape of Mario's face. Follow the basic path of the edge of the circle but draw the line closer to the eye , then curve out again to create the cheek. Sketch lightly at first, and when you get the shape right, darken the lines. Draw an extra curved line under the bottom lip for the chin. Draw the lower, left side of the face but don't darken the line above the ear.


 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 20

Step 20: Draw the sideburn under the the hat's bill and next to the ear. The sideburn should go down a bit below the horizontal construction line. The shape is made up of two vertical lines with two short curved lines at the bottom. Draw a line on the right side for the visible portion of Mario's other sideburn.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 21

Step 21: Darken the C-shaped line on the left to create Mario's ear. Draw a wavy line similar to the letter 3 inside the ear for the inner strcuture. Add a short line on the right side for the visible portion of the other ear.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 22

Step 22: Use the small circle to the left of the body as a guide to draw Mario's first hand. First lightly draw a diagonal line across the circle to indicate where the folded fingers will be to form a fist. On the top right edge of the initial circle, draw a curved line for the thumb. Now draw the folded fingers as curved lines up against the diagonal line. The arcs that form the folded fingers should get smaller the lower they are. Follow the basic path of the initial circle and draw a wavy line on the left side to form the knuckles.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 23

Step 23: Draw a curved line within the shape of the initial circle to create the rest of Mario's hand. This line should go from the thumb to the lowermost folded finger. Add a small line inside for a crease. Darken the initial curved lines on the right to create the shape of the arm.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 24

Step 24: Use the small circle at the top as a guide to draw Mario's other hand. Draw the thumb on the top, left side as a small circle-like shape. Lightly draw a diagonal line across the circle to indicate where the folded fingers will go. Now draw a series of curved lines up against the diagonal line to form the folded fingers. The pinky should be the smallest finger and the only one that's not hidden.


 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 25

Step 25: Follow the edge of the initial circle as you draw a wavy line at the top to create the knuckles. Continue following the path of the circle and add the opening of Mario's glove at the bottom. Use a couple of curved lines to draw the left side of the palm and the crease inside. Darken the guide lines below the hand to create the shape of the arm.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 26

Step 26: Draw the overalls' suspenders under Mario's head using a few lines and circles. First draw a line that goes from the shoulder on the left to the guide for the leg. Then draw a small circle above the guide for the leg as the fastener. Add another line on the left for the other side of the suspender.

Draw the same shape on the upper, right side of the body for Mario's other suspender. The shape of the suspender is similar to a very long letter U that's tilted to the left. Draw a small circle at the bottom of the shape for the suspender's fastener.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 27

Step 27: Use the shapes on the lower, left side of the body as guides to draw the first leg. Darken the arc to create the shape of Mario's knee and leg. Darken the top half of the circle to create the pants cuff and front of the shoe. Draw two curved, parallel lines across the circle to create the bottom edge of the shoe. Darken the bottom half of the initial circle but make the shape thinner to complete the shoe's sole.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 28

Step 28: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the shape of the body. Follow the edge of the initial circle and darken the line to create Mario's belly. Draw a curved line in between the supenders to create the top of the overalls.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 29

Step 29: Darken the long line under the body, on the right side, to create the shape of Mario's leg. Add a curved line at the bottom for the pants cuff. Use the small circle as a guide to draw the other shoe but make the shape a bit thinner.


 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 30

Step 30: For a more finished look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo 31

Step 31: After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser for a cleaner drawing.

 

Draw Super Mario Bros. Nintendo

Final Step: Color your Mario drawing using color pencils, markers or even crayons! Use dark red or light brown to create shadows on the sides of the hat and shirt. Then use red on top. You can also skip the shadows and just use red for a simpler drawing.

Color Mario's sideburns dark brown and the eyebrows and mustache black. Use a bit of light brown to create the shadows on the skin. Then use peach on top to complete the skin's color. If you don't have peach, improvise and use yellow-orange or pink. Use blue and light blue to color Mario's eyes. Use dark or navy blue for a base coat and shadows of the overalls. Then add regular blue on top. Remember, for an easier drawing, skip the shadows and just use a single color.

Color the fasteners using brown, light brown and yellow-orange. Use dark brown to give Mario's shoes some shadows. Use light brown on top of that. Make a small section on the sides of the shoes lighter to represent shine. Add a bit of gray on the sides of the gloves to create shadows.
