First, create the snail using a few basic shapes and black outlines. Once you are done, add a few plain colors on the character.

Next, select all shapes on the character (one-by-one) and use the gradient tool to add nice fill effects. The goal is to create nice shadows that will be enhanced by smaller ones later on.

Step 3

Create a small circle on the head and fill it with a bright tone of brown. Use transparency to hide the bottom of the shape. You can also create white circles to represent reflections on the eyes and the pupils.

Step 4

Once you are finished, create shapes above the head and below the mouth to give more depth to the head. These shadows must be subtle and transparent on one end.

Step 5

For the final step, add two small shadows below the eyes of the snail cartoon. Then, add another large circle near the mouth and color this one with a brown tone. Finally, work on the shell and add the patterns using light shadows. Nice! :)
