How to Draw Mario

Posted in characters by Demon on October 4, 2008

Step 4)

This is part 2 of the photoshop tutorial to draw Mario. Create a large black oval on a new layer below the others. Contract (Select > modify >contract ) the selection by 3 pixels and delete the area that’s now selected. Create a smaller circle, on a new layer, and do the same contracting it by 3 pixels.

a)                                                                        b)

Step 5)

Use the eraser tool to turn the circle into a semi-circle. Duplicate the semi-circle, moving it to the right. Create a new layer underneath the semi-circles, and then use the brush tool to paint the tongue red.

a)                                                                        b)

Step 6)

Next, we’re going to create the chine. Make an oval below the mouth. Create a circular selection over it, as shown in image a), and delete the area that’s now selected.

a)                                                                        b)

Step 7)

Make a new layer, create a large circle to the left of the face, and then contract the selection by 4 pixels. Use the eraser tool to delete the part shown in image b).

a)                                                                        b)

Step 8 )

Next, were going to create Mario’s big ears. Using the same technique as we’ve used for a lot of the other parts, create a circle to the left and contract the selection by 4 pixels. Then erase the part of the circle so that it looks like the one in image b).

a)                                                                        b)

Step 9 )

Use the same technique to create a smaller semi circle on the top right of the ear part. Then, for the top part of the head, create a large oval shape spanning across the eyes. Again, contract the oval by 4 pixels and delete the selected area. We only want to keep ¼ of the large oval, so use the polygonal lasso tool to make a selection, as shown in image b). Delete the contents of the selection.

a)                                                                        b)

Step 10)

Next, duplicate the top part of the head, flip it horizontally and then line it up to the right hand side. Continue to duplicate each part of the face we create for the left hand side, including the ears and the cheek. Flip them all horizontally and them merge all the face outline parts together. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to select the centre of the face outline, using the magic want tool. Create a new layer below the outline and then fill it with peach. You should end up with something like in image a). Next, merge all the eye layers together and fill the part, shown in image b), with white.

a)                                                                b)                                                                 c)
