9. Detail Sailor Moon. Draw short, curved lines beneath the neck to indicate the collar bones. Draw many parallel curved lines across the collar of the garment. Draw several small circles descending from each ear, culminating in a crescent moon. This forms the earrings. Draw the eyes using three ovals each, with parallel lines between the outermost. Use curved lines to indicate the nose, mouth, chin, cheeks, eyelashes, and eyebrows. In the center of the forehead, draw four parallel “V” shaped lines with an oval in between.
