Introduction: How to Draw Yoshi From Mario.

In this instructable, I am going to teach you how to draw Yoshi from Mario.

Step 1: Finding a Good Reference Picture

When you're drawing Yoshi, you need to find a good reference picture to get the idea of the drawing. It's okay if you take a lot of time to find a photo. Just remember to find a good one that you like. For this instructable, we will be using the game cover from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.  Note: We will only draw Yoshi, not Toad.

Step 2: Draw the Basic Shapes

When you draw Yoshi , you need to draw his basic shapes. It's a lot easier then starting from scratch. If you don't do this step you may fail!

Step 3: Draw His Eye

Draw his eye on top.

Step 4: Erase the Lines You Want and Clean Up the Drawing

If you want Yoshi to look like Yoshi you have to erase some lines. Look at the photo and pick the lines you want to erase.

Step 5: Draw the Bottom of His Shoes

Draw the bottom of his shoes.

Step 6: Shade His Eye and Nostril

Shade his eye and nostril. Don't forget to leave a highlight in his Eye!

Step 7: Outline His Body in Fine Tip Marker(Optional)


This step is optional. Outline his body in fine tip marker.

Step 8: Draw His Shell

Draw his shell on top of his body.

Step 9: Outline His Shell in Fine Tip Marker(Optional)

This step is optional. Outline his shell in fine tip marker.

Step 10: Color Him In

Color Yoshi in! I colored him in using Prismacolor Double Ended Art Markers.

Step 11: Add Your Signature(Optional)

This step is optional. Sign your finished Yoshi!

Step 12: Finished

There you have it. Your finished! Hang it up. Give it to someone. Do whatever you want with it.   Just remember to have fun.
