It's now time to create new shapes to illustrate stronger shadows. Apply a new shape on the head, the hat, the shirt and the eyes. The shapes on the shirt, the head and behind the eyes must be darker. The ones on the hat, the eyes and the pupils must be colored in white. You can use transparency on every shape to enhance the effect.
