First, draw the outline of the character using a dark thick line. Make sure that all important features like the cape and the teeth are visible. Once you are finished, add plain colors on most parts of the character.

Then, select all shapes one-by-one and use the gradient tool to create simple shadows. Don't forget that most shapes must be darker on the bottom and lighter on top. 

Step 3

When you are done, create new circular shapes to represent the reflections on the pupils and on the eyes. You can use the transparency tool to complete the effect. You can also create new shapes to form new shadows below the arms and near the ears.

Step 4

Finally, create a large shape on the head and the body to create one last additional shadow. You can also create reflections on the shoes using a duplicate of the feet. Great job! Adding simple shadows doesn't require much work if you know how to use them properly on your Dracula cartoon.
