2. Sketch the hair, fully enclosing the outline of the face. Use long, curved lines to sketch in the top of the head. Then, use a series of curved lines of various lengths to complete the locks of hair around the face. For each lock, use two curved lines that meet at a sharp point. Note how some of the locks overlap one another.

4. Draw the girl's neck and torso. Extend a pair of lines downward from the head to form the neck. Then, extend curved lines from just above the base of the neck. Bring them together at a point. This outlines the inside of the shirt collar. Form the sides of the collar using curved triangular shapes. From the collar, extend curved lines on each side to form the shoulders. Use sets of parallel lines to demarcate the sides of the vest.

6. Draw the first crying eye. Use a thick curved line for the eyelid. Beneath it, outline the eye using curved lines that meet at points. Use a curved line, doubled back upon itself, to enclose the tear. For the eye itself, enclose several increasingly smaller circles within one another. Shade one to indicate the pupil. Add dimension by drawing a curved line above the eyelid.
