Cool! Let's start with the addition of a large square to form the head of the cartoon character. Then, add a small rectangle below to create the body and a second one to represent the legs.

Areas like the pupils, the shirt and the shoes can be brighter while the hat, the hair and the arms must be darker. The skull can be white, just like the eyes. The center part of the belt and the buttons on the shirt are mostly orange.
