So, I figure you all might like to see Bowser in steps while I’m drawing him- the bad quality pictures were taken with my 3DS.
First we start with the face. Mouth very first. Then we give him a bit of a neck and the beginnings of a shell. Reckoning on how big the legs and body should be. Then we can move on to other things.
Beginning on Bowser’s arm. This is actually a bit tricky. What pose do we want his arm in?
Now we add beef to his arm. When looking at his official artwork pictures, we see that his hand is almost as big as his face.
Now we begin on his legs. I just plain finished his foot because there isn’t much to do there.
Adding another arm.
Taking a bit of hand shape. This arm is also beefy. Now, we polish the shape of his shell, so that it’s mostly equal.Roughly placing his spike bases. Smoothing these bases out so that they’re mostly equal. Added the spikes, and his right hand has taken form. His other hand takes form. After, we add minor details, tail, cuffs, extra spikes, chest shell details, and so on.
Bowser’s ready for what I have in store for him! In this case, I have a couple more characters to do before he can be in the final drawing.
