Step 1

Alright: start by making a circle and a line to show which direction Mambo's facing.


Step 2

Get the lines down on top of the guide lines. This is the second line draft. It helps the details you draw. Mambo has a specific way of his eyebrows curving inward, and gives him his personality.



Step 3

Using your guidelines on both your first and second line drafts, draw finishing lines over them. Use the small square paintbrush: This is not as light as the pencil, but not as thick as other tools.


Step 4

You can erase your blue and red marks on your paper, because they aren't needed in the finished piece. Select the color you used for the first guide line. Select the eraser tool and, while holding down your right mouse button, erase the guide lines. Do this to each color. This is a trick in MSPaint. It will not erase your polished, final lines!


Step 5

Next, add colors.
Mambo's colors are unique and the pallette mostly consists of different variety of pinks and purples. His clothes are shades of blue. Mambo's eye area is darker than his face, and his muzzle is lighter than his main, face, color. On the tips of his ears, the are darker as they go to the end. His nose is a really dark purplish pink. The inside of his ears are grayish pink. His eyes seem purple, but they are actually a light blue.

On your left, the suit is half blue. On your right, it's mainly grayish blue. He has a sash wrapped around his waist that's a little darker and grayer than the right side of his suit. His sleeves are light blue.

His hat is dark blue, with the top an even darker blue. He has a moon symbol on the front of it.

Lots of detail to remember, but it pays off!



Step 6

Lastly, put some shadows on him. It doesn't matter wher you put your shadows- it's your picture! You can put him wherever, and the shadows depend on where he is.


Step 7

NOW YOU'RE DONE! Congrats! Go get yourself a cookie- you deserve it!
