Yes, drawing cute cartoon characters also means working on ... evil entities! This appealing devil drawing was created from basic shapes, just like all characters from this page. Although some parts like the head are slightly more complex to get right, this lesson is more about adding cool effects than learning to draw a step-by-step character. 

As you can see below, shadows were added in the fifth step. These new shapes are now covering the left side of the face, the body and can also be seen below the eyes. Highlights made from white shapes (see step number seven and eight) were also drawn to create more depth inside this illustration.
