6. Next, draw the eyes. Draw two sets of curved lines, forming the cheeks and the eyelids. Draw curved lines between each set to enclose two partial oval shapes.

Within each of these eyes, sketch a circle within a circle and shade between them. These are the pupils. Draw two more curved lines above each eye, indicating the top of the eyelid and the eyebrow.

9. Finish your cartoon by detailing the woman's clothes. Draw a "V" shaped line at the neck, and a curved line between its sections.

This forms the neck of the shirt and jacket. Enclose overlapping partial triangles at the sides of the V-neck to form the collars of the jacket. Finally, draw a line across each shoulder to detail the top of the sleeve.
