You can begin by drawing the outline of your cartoon character. Once you are finished, select the fill tool and apply plain colors on your illustration. Of course, you can add the colors of your choice if you want.

Step 2

Once the character is completely colored, pick up the gradient tool and apply a second color on all shapes of the character. Make sure that the top color is lighter.

Step 3

Create five small circles to represent reflection on the eyes and the buttons. You can also use the transparency tool to hide the top part of each new shape.

Step 4

Create more shapes on the hat, the face, the scarf and the arms. The goal is to create new shadows to enhance readability. The shape on the hat must be lighter otherwise it won't be visible.

Step 5
