Next, add the body using another circular shape. The head must remain much larger than the body. The jaw should be drawn using a shape as shown on the illustration below. The nose is made from a small oval shape.

Good. Now let's work on the head to give more life to this illustration. First, draw the ears using small circles. The eyes are also made from circles (larger ones). Pupils are also large and should be closer to the middle of the face, not centered inside the eyes.
