Now, with the help of very light lines, we sketch out the arms and legs.
Starting with this step, we will work with the details. Draw oval eyes, pupils inside them and nose.
Now draw out the outlines of the face, a smiling mouth with lines of teeth. Also do not forget to draw a thin mustache.
Now accurately draw out the outlines of the forehead and the high hairstyle of Apu.
Now carefully draw out the outlines of the collar. With the help of short curved lines draw the hair on the chest.
Now draw out the outlines of the shoulders and arms connected in front of the chest. Also draw out the outlines of clothing on the chest.
We continue to draw the upper part of the clothing neatly drawing the underside of the cardigan.
