In this tutorial, you will draw the video game character Mario. Luigi is Mario’s younger brother. First appeared in Mario Bros, and has appeared in almost every game in the series since then. Luigi is slightly taller than Mario, and thinner than him. He wears a green long sleeve, blue pants with yellow buttons on suspenders, white gloves, brown boots and a signature cap with his logo—a white circle with a green letter “L”, meaning the first letter of his name. His eyes are blue, he grows a black mustache like Mario, but less thick and curly, and also has a large nose, slightly protruding ears, and a high-pitched voice. Luigi is portrayed as timid and a little cowardly. He is also extremely anxious and considerably shy. However, he overcomes his fears and acts like a hero when needed, such as when someone he knows is in danger.
