How to Draw a Piranha Plant, Piranha Plant, Mario

Artist: Dawn / August 26, 2011

Step 1.

Make a circle for the head of the plant, and then draw in a wide open greater than symbol which will be for the mouth.

Step 2.

Using the guides you made in step one, you can begin drawing out the actual size and make-up of the mouth. Draw in some sharp thick teeth, and then draw in a dividing line that separates the tongue from the sides of the mouth.

Step 3.

Next, draw in the thick lips or actual external surface of the mouth, and move to step four.

Step 4.

Thicken the lining you drew in step one for the back of the plants head, and then draw in the decorative spots like you see here.

Step 5.

The last step is simple because all you need to do is draw out the stem and the leaves that are attached to the plant. Erase the guides that you drew in step one, and then you are all done.

Step 6.

Here is what the drawing looks like when you are done. Now you can grab some simple colors and color in your drawing. I hope you liked this lesson on how to draw a piranha plant.

Description: You know that annoying plant in all of the Mario Bros. games? Well, today I am going to show you how to draw one. I know you may not think that this is a valid lesson, but for a lot of members and visitors here this is a tutorial that has been waited for. I can remember getting a few requests for a lesson on "how to draw a piranha plant", but I never paid any attention to something so simple. I guess I thought that this is an object that really can’t be fanned by many people since it’s just a plant that either comes up from a pipe, or is rooted in the ground. The piranha plant is much like a venues flytrap, they have a mouth with tiny, but sharp teeth and they also like to eat people and other objects. They are mostly red and green, but I have seen them in other shades. This plant made its Mario debut back in 1985, and to this day, it is still a major obstacle for Mario, and Luigi to pass. As you can imagine this is going to be a super simple tutorial to follow, and when you’re done you can actually make yourself a scene from Mario because now you have another piece to add to your drawing collection of Mario characters. I hope you enjoy, and I also hope that you learn something new. Peace out people!
