Hello everyone, today I’m sharing how to make 8-bit pixel Cheep Cheep from the NES version of Super Mario Bros. I followed the same technique I used to create 8-bit pixel Link from the original The Legend of Zelda game.
You can watch the video tutorial for Link below. Continue reading for Cheep Cheep's instructions.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools and Supplies
Step 2: Route Along 1 1/2" Wide Grid Lines
Step 3: Cut Out Cheep Cheep's Silhouette
Cut out the Cheep Cheep’s shape with a jigsaw (or use a bandsaw or scroll saw).
Step 4: Prep Cheep Cheep for Painting
Sand between the grooves and sand the surface of Cheep Cheep. I used scrap piece of wood to support the sandpaper as I sanded between the grooves.
Spray Cheep Cheep with white spray primer.
Step 5: Paint Cheep Cheep's Pixels
Paint each pixel on Cheep Cheep. Painting between the grooves is a little tricky. Use painters tape to maintain clean lines. I was impatient and used paint brushes for painting miniatures to paint in the crevices.
If necessary, apply multiple layers of paint. Once the paint is dried, protect the finish with a clear coat.
Step 6: Hang on a Wall and Enjoy!
I am really happy with how pixel Cheep Cheep turned out and look forward to working on my next pixel project!
