Great! Let's begin by drawing the character itself without any accessories or elements that make a cowboy so special.

The ears are also made from circles.

Next, draw a long curved line to form the mouth of the cowboy. The arms are made from small rectangles while the hands are done using small circles. Finally, draw the feet using small curved lines.
