Introduction: Mini Mario

This is an easy 16-bit Lego Mario. I decided to make this model because I love the Mario series. I looked at a picture from Super Mario All-Stars (for the SNES) and counted each individual pixel that makes up Mario. Thus each stud is equal to exactly one pixel.

Step 1: Step 1: What You Need

1 - Lego 16x16 base plate
2 - 1x1 blocks (yellow)
2 - 1x1 blocks (light/baby blue)
2 - 1x1 blocks (white)
17 - 1x1 blocks (black)
2 - 1x1 blocks (light brown)
5 - 1x1 blocks (red)
9 - 1x1 blocks (blue)
2 - 1x1 blocks (maroon)
16 - 2x1 blocks (black)
1 - 2x1 block (white)
2 - 2x1 blocks (light brown)
3 - 2x1 blocks (red)
5 - 2x1 blocks (tan/sand)
2 - 2x1 blocks (maroon)
2 - 2x1 blocks (blue)
5 - 3x1 blocks (black)
2 - 3x1 blocks (maroon)
3 - 3x1 blocks (white)
1 - 3x1 block (blue)
3 - 4x1 blocks (black)
1 - 4x1 block (maroon)
2 - 4x1 blocks (red)
1 - 4x1 blocks (tan/sand)
1 - 6x1 block (black)
1 - 2x3 block (tan/sand)
2 - L blocks (black)
2 - L blocks (light brown)
2 - L blocks (tan/sand)

Don't worry if you don't have the exact color block in the exact size. Always remember that two 1x1 blocks = one 2x1 block etc. Sometimes you have to wing it.
