Let's start drawing! First, draw the outlines of the shark using simple black lines. Once you are done, apply plain colors on your cartoon animal. As you can see, the part below the mouth should be lighter compare to the top.

Time to add a few effects around the eye. Create three different shapes. One will be used to create reflection on the eye, the second shape must be used to create reflection on the pupil while the third shape can be used to create a large patch behind the eye. You can also create a large shadow and place it near the mouth and below the teeth.

Step 4
