The following is an older video tutorial:
Intro: Start drawing Nintendo's Mario with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Mario, start with a big circle on the bottom half of the page. This will be the basic shape for Mario's head.
Step 2: Now draw a wide arc on top of the oval so that the end result kind of looks like an egg. This shape will help you draw Mario's hat later on.
Step 3: Inside the main circle, draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal. When drawing the lines, bend them so they follow the shape of the sphere. These will be construction lines that will help you place Mario's features later on.
Step 4: Starting where the two construction lines meet, draw an egg shape on the left side of the main circle. Draw the egg shape so it extends outside of the main circle. This is the basic shape for Mario's nose.
Step 5: On top of the horizontal construction line and to the left of the vertical construction line, draw an oval. The left side of the oval should graze the vertical construction line. On the other side of the vertical construction line, draw an arc that follows the same shape as the oval and sits on top of Mario's nose. These will be the eyes of this video game character.
