For this drawing lesson, let's try a simple (and fun) cartoon character filled with details that should easily be recognizable!

Sketch a large oval shape to start this drawing tutorial. This shape is used to illustrate the head. The body is sketched with a rectangle. The pants are also made from a small rectangle.
