HAPPY MARCH 10! Or as it’s better known, Mario Day, (Mar10.) And to celebrate the Mario Bros., I decided to do an illustration of their arch nemesis, Bowser (King Koopa!) Trust me, it makes sense! ๐Ÿ˜… I drew Mario, Luigi & Princess Peach for Mario Day a while back. This was a perfect time to add their big, bad foe! I tried to do a mix of the old school “classic" look & his new design from the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie. (Doesn’t Jack Black sound amazing as Bowser in the trailers?!) Below are glimpses of the coloring, inking & sketch process, as well as the other characters’ portraits.

After drawing Bowser in blue pencil (which will be removed in Photoshop once scanned,)
 I inked the small drawing with pens.

Preliminary sketches for Bowser.
