Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw King Boo from Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. video games. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a big circle near the middle of the page. This will be the basic shape for King Boo's head and body. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. The vertical line should be closer to the right side of the circle, and the horizontal line should be closer to the top. These will be construction lines that will help you when learning how to draw King Boo's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small ovals as guides for King Boo's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The ovals should be pretty close together. The oval on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 4: On the bottom half of the circle, under the horizontal construction line, draw a shape similar to a half oval as a guide for King Boo's mouth. To draw this shape, first draw a big U-shaped arc, then close the arc on top by drawing a horizontal line.
Step 5: On top of the circle, draw a shape similar to a letter W with two small vertical lines on either side. This is a guide for King Boo's crown. Notice that the crown is on the left side of the vertical construction line.
