The ears are also made from circles.
Next, draw a long curved line to form the mouth of the cowboy. The arms are made from small rectangles while the hands are done using small circles. Finally, draw the feet using small curved lines.
It's now time to add some features to create a lovely cowboy. Start with the hat, which is made from a series of curved lines as shown on the illustration below. The hair is created from several pointed lines and a large stripe is added on the hat of the character.
Below the neck, you can add a scarf made from straight lines. Complete this piece of clothing by drawing a circle and two small triangle on the bottom of the object. Then, a belt is sketched just above the legs. You can use three rectangles to complete this one. Don't forget to draw a small line on the middle of the shirt. Nice work!
