How to draw Princess Peach from Super Mario




Today we are gonna draw lovely Princess Peach from Super Mario requested by, hmm. I completely forgot, common, who requested her?! ^_^

As always all the blue lines are just construction lines and will be erased later so do not push on your pencil too much ^_^ I will try to be super efficient with text so will only describe steps that require some explanation.

Step 1

Draw the head circle, center line and eye line. Notice that eye line is pretty low. Center line is more to the left and both of the lines are slightly curved. Mark the green line for Peach’s chin.  The distance of the chin from the bottom of the head circle should be greater than the distance of the eyeline.

Step 2

Notice that the eye on the left is smaller and closer to the center line.

Step 7

Step 8

Lighten all the construction lines by “stamping” the kneedable eraser and ink the final lines. Make sure to refer to the picture above as many construction lines shouldn’t be completely inked especialy with overlaping objects like earings behind the head etc. There are also some new lines here, so make sure to draw them in pencil before inking.

Make part of the lines nice and bold and fill the eyes. Notice that there are parts of the pupils left white to suggest eye reflections. Again refer to the picture above.

Step 9

Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all construction lines.

Step 10

If you like color the picture and beutiful princes Peach is finished ^_^ If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Peach from memory several times. Always compare the drawing to the original and correct any mistakes. Do this till you are happy with the result. It doesn’t have to look exactly the same, don’t sweat the details. The point is that you get the main shapes right and that it looks good. This is the best way to build a huge library of manga shapes in your memory that you can use to draw and design your own manga characters ^_-.

Draw with passion! ^_^
