How to Draw Bowser

***tier-3-top.shtml*** Bowser

Easily one of the coolest video game villains ever... is Bowser of Nintendo's mega hit game(s) - Super Mario Brothers! His look is so distinct - unique - memorable... all the ingredients for an awesome boss in any video game.

Here, let's draw him. I hope the planning part, helps you to more easily bring your character into view.

First Step - Like a Dragon... With a Shell!

If you can picture a cross between a dragon and a turtle, then already - you're well on your way to being able to create a homage to this character on the page in front of you.

These two images should help...

See how I've marked off those key physical attributes/features - that once acknowledged - SCREAM... THIS IS BOWSER!! :-)

Use them as pre-drawing visual aids... or use them as sketching guides. And when you're ready - let's draw.



Second Step - How to Draw Bowser from Mario Brothers

His eyes locked between his bushy orange eyebrows, and his alligator-like snout... it's logical here, to bring the snout and/or eyebrows into view... BEFORE the eyes. Have a quick look up top again, and you'll see how the eyes are 'set in behind'.

Here's how the lesson pans out. As always, do your best to tap into that more creative side... let go... make it happen! :-)

Ah yes - as pretty much always... it's the color pattern that seals the deal, and lets us observe this drawing as a likeness to the subject at hand. In this way, even if it takes a few tries to get those lines "just right"... the colors (orange, green, yellow...) really do help to make the final product all the more convincing.

And yes - that's a wrap. This lesson will soon become part of an entirely new section - all about Video Game Characters! :-)
