Next, you can draw the eyes and the eyebrows. The eyes need to be big and round. Notice the little curve on the bottom of the eye. Manga characters usually have big pupils.

Then, you can draw the nose and the mouth using a simple line for each. Try to draw those lines as near as possible of the chin.
