Good! You can proceed with the creation of the head using a large oval shape. The body is represented by a long and thin rectangle. The pants are also made using a small rectangle.
Next, you can sketch long arms using small rectangles. The hands don't have fingers and are made from circles. A mix of curved and straight lines can be used to illustrate the feet.
In this third step, you can draw the hat using a long rectangle. A small stripe can be added on the hat. Both ears are made from tiny circular shapes.
Inside the head, you can draw the eyes and the pupils using circles. Make sure these shapes are large enough to create an adorable look. The weapon of the character is mostly made from thin rectangles.
Complete this lesson with the addition of many smaller details. First, you can draw a moustache under the character's nose. Then, you can add the mouth and draw some accessories on the jacket of the soldier.
