### Step 1

The first step is to sketch the skeleton of our character. The first step is to draw the head, which looks like an oval. By drawing a simple line create the spine. This length will be equivalent to the height of the two ends.

Draw legs and arms. The height of the legs is equal to the height of the spine. Create lines that define the symmetry of the face. The vertical line can help us figure out where the center point of the face is. From the center draw horizontal lines that will allow us to draw the eyes.
