Step 30: For a more finished look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker.
Step 31: After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser for a cleaner drawing.
Final Step: Color your Mario drawing using color pencils, markers or even crayons! Use dark red or light brown to create shadows on the sides of the hat and shirt. Then use red on top. You can also skip the shadows and just use red for a simpler drawing.
Color Mario's sideburns dark brown and the eyebrows and mustache black. Use a bit of light brown to create the shadows on the skin. Then use peach on top to complete the skin's color. If you don't have peach, improvise and use yellow-orange or pink. Use blue and light blue to color Mario's eyes. Use dark or navy blue for a base coat and shadows of the overalls. Then add regular blue on top. Remember, for an easier drawing, skip the shadows and just use a single color.
Color the fasteners using brown, light brown and yellow-orange. Use dark brown to give Mario's shoes some shadows. Use light brown on top of that. Make a small section on the sides of the shoes lighter to represent shine. Add a bit of gray on the sides of the gloves to create shadows.
