How to Draw Koopa, Koopa, Mario

Artist: Dawn / August 30, 2011

Step 1.

Very easily make two circles. The first one should be smaller than the second. Attach the second shape that looks more like an egg to the bottom of the head.

Step 2.

One of the things that is hard about drawing a Koopa, the the shape or structure of the face or mouth. Draw a claw like shape for his snout and then draw in a bottom jaw. Sketch in a cheek, and then draw in some nostrils and a neck.

Step 3.

Draw out the hoops for the eyes and then draw in eyeballs. Finish drawing out the head like so, as well as the neck.

Step 4.

Starting at the base of the neck, and begin drawing out the neck opening for the shell. Continue to draw out the body and then you will also need to incorporate the arms and hands too. Some of the leg is also drawn in.

Step 5.

Draw out the back or hump of the turtle shell, and leave a notch for the wing. Add the markings on the shell and then draw in the surface lines on the belly.

Step 6.

Draw in the very simple looking wings, and then be sure that the edges have feather loops.

Step 7.

Finally for the last drawing step all you have to do is draw in the boots, and then draw in the detailing to the bottom of the soles. Clean up the drawing by getting rid of those sketched mistakes, and guides.

Step 8.

This is the drawing when you are done. As you can see there is an awesome picture waiting to be colored in. Great job everyone, keep up the good work!

Description: Up next is a simple turtle that many of you will recognize. I doubt very highly that there is one person on Dragoart that doesn’t know who this Mario character is. It is the flying turtle that seems to get in our way when we need to take a leap much higher than Mario can go. One of the main reasons why I hate Koopa, is because whenever I play as Luigi, he has a different type of running and jumping style, and when Koopa is in the way, I feel like biting my nails because I know I’m gonna lose two or even three guys. This lesson is going to show you "how to draw Koopa" step by step, and I think that you will find that even though we cringe when we see that flying turtle in the path of our obstacles, he is still a very fun character to draw. A drawing on one of Mario’s oldest enemies is a must have if you are making a collection of sketches based on all the figures from Mario Bros. Koopa is definitely a character to include in that collection. I do hope you have fun drawing Koopa. “I’LL BE BACK” so hang on and keep those pencils moving.
