How to Draw Bowser

Step 1.

In this first step what you will do is begin drawing out the guidelines and shapes to form what you call a frame for Bowser. All the guidelines are going to be half shapes. They are what you call lines of position. What you will want to do first is    

Step 2.

First, let's draw the outer shape of Bowser's mouth since this is where most of the details will be planted around. Make sure that you draw equal shapes for each side of his mouth. It almost looks like the wings of a butterfly; try not to overwork yo   

Step 3.

It's time to move onto drawing the top part of Bowser's head. First, we move from eye to eye, brow to brow. After you've drawn that, work on the horns and the hairline for his lovely Mohawk!

Step 4.

Finish off the mohawk by adding seperate whims of hair with tapered edges, and then fill in the eyes. Take your time, no need to rush! Let's start working on his mouth which should first be shaped by two curves that form a "W" or upside down "3". Dra   

Step 5.

Lastly, fill in with three fangs and the tongue line.

Step 6.

Now, it's time to work on the shell and shell horns. Don't forget to draw beneath the shell lip, the spiked bracers that makes Bowser so epic!

Step 7.

Then, starting with the arm base, work each outer frame for each bracer, Once you get to that part, work on the hands. In this case, Bowser ONLY has four writhing fingers, which make him look even more fierce. Keep them sharp looking!

Step 8.

It's time to work on extra details and his separated underbelly. Take your time!

Step 9.

Lastly, work on the legs, leg by leg. Don't forget to detail the claws later on with thin line weights.

Step 10.

That's it your done. How'd he come out? I know he came out good. Well all you need to do is color him in and put him along side Mario, Luigi, and Peach. That completes this tutorial on how to draw Bowser from Mario Bros. I hope you had a butt load of

Description: In this second version of my gaming day’s tutorial I will be showing you how to draw one of the roughest and evil looking characters of gaming history. I find this next character to be somewhat of a comical villain because when ever my brother and I tried to defeat him we would always laugh our butts off. Anyway I’m sure your all wondering who I’m talking about right? Well it’s pretty obvious who you will be drawing today since you can see his picture to the left of you as you read this description on him. As you know I already drew and submitted Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach from the Mario Bros series. Well brace yourselves because today is the day that you will be learning how to draw Bowser from Mario Bros. Now this character has been a thorn in Mario’s side forever. As a matter of fact Bowser is like a bad cold, he never goes away for Mario or Princess Peach. He is what you call a giant turtle with a green shell and spikes all over his back. In the every first Mario he was just a green oversized turtle with no clothing or accessories at all. As the games progressed his image became more and more detailed and advanced. To me he looks like a cross between a turtle (because of the shell on his back) and some sort of fire breathing dragon (because of the dragon like face, tail, and limbs with the spikes and the whole nine). Bowser also has what you call a red Mohawk for his hair style. He is considered to be the most powerful out of the Koopa race. Bowser’s whole main purpose is to eventually take over Mushroom Kingdom, which is why he is always kidnapping Peach and the reason why Mario is forced to rescue his pretty Princess from total disaster. I think Princess Peach and Mario have a thing for each other. I think Bowser is cool and he makes playing all the Mario Bros games worth my while. I have to say though; I haven’t played many games lately just Command and Conquer for the Xbox 360. I will always be a loyal fan of this Nintendo game even when I am 50 years old. I hope you enjoy learning how to draw Bowser from Mario Bros step by step. The instructions make drawing him a lot easier. Peace out and stick around for yet another tutorial coming your way...8-P
