First, draw a simple cartoon character and add wings, a ring above the head and a long dress. If you want to add more details or create a more complex outfit, feel free to do so. Once you are finished, add plain colors to the character.

Step 2

Great! Now select all shapes and use the gradient tool to add shadows. Of course, you will need to select all shapes one-by-one since this operation cannot be performed on all objects at the same time. A circular fill is required for the eyes.

Step 3

Let's move on with the most challenging part. Create a large shape on the left side of the head and use transparency to create a subtle shadow. Then, create another small shapes below the head to create another light shadow. On the eyes and the pupils, add white circles (with transparency on the bottom) to illustrate reflection. You can also create dark patches below each eye.

Step 4

Finally, create three new shapes to represent shadows on the arms and on the left side of the dress. Use transparency to create a better job. Nice work! As you can see, it's not too difficult to create something nice, attracting and visually interesting.
